INDUSTRY EXPOSÉ (June 14, 2018)

This is your Champion Edition of the Industry Expose’! Now go grab your Stanley Cup mug and get to reading! #DistrictofChampions

The Pulse Industry Exposé is our bread and butter. It is this kind of knowledge sharing that inspired The Pulse in the first place. We have kept our eyes open and our ears to the ground to identify the status (whether they are cancelled, pre-solicitation, or awarded) of impactful contracts across the Federal Government. We have also identified past and upcoming industry conferences and events. This information is not exhaustive, but it is contextual. We are not only telling you the what - we strive to make connections that provide you with the why.

Impacts of Automated Vehicles on Highway Infrastructure DOT FMCSA HRDI20180027PR  -   -  August-18 TBD:Shaping Opportunity We aren't keeping up with The Jetsons yet - but the Government is ready to expose liability in the age of autonomous vehicles. As Automated Driving Systems (ADS) and Automated Vehicles (AVs) are increasingly being used on U.S. public roadways, FHWA has identified a requirement to assess and understand the demands and potential impacts of automated vehicles both on current infrastructure assets, and on the future design of new infrastructure. Tempering safety with the desire to facilitate AV use and adoption, state and local DOTs are interested in understanding what elements of highway infrastructure are important for AV operation.  Further, as investment decisions are made to carry highway infrastructure into the future, designers, builders, owners and maintainers are beginning to consider AV use as a given feature of the future highway environment. Understandably, highway owners are concerned regarding their future highway investments, and want to be proactive in building the needs of AVs into their project plans and designs. Similarly, highway infrastructure is designed and built with the intent that it will last decades, and decisions made now will have an impact on the operation of traffic, AV and otherwise,well into the future.

Since its inception, GSA has considered ways to improve the HACS Portfolio and, as such, is exploring a path to modernizing the HACS SINs.

Big Data Analytics Training FAA 30369  -   -  - TBD:Shaping Opportunity   We love it when the Government tries to be funny. The William J. Hughes Technical Center (WJHTC) Senior Management Team (SMT) has identified five strategic focus areas: core work, technology advancements, workforce,partnerships, and outreach. The purpose of this working group, the Big Data Analytics Working Group (Big DAWG), is to be proactive in the use,dissemination, and advancement of Big Data Analytics enabling technologies to FAA organizations wanting to benefit and leverage big data analytics technology.The Big DAWG has set out to engage the WJHTC brain trust to leverage relationships, and expertise to disseminate big data analytics technology to address and resolve a multitude of complex data analytics problems in the National Airspace System (NAS). Since the members of the Big DAWG are from a multi-disciplinary group across the facility, hands-on instruction (aka a GovCon babysitter/overseer, whatever) is needed to allow members to learn very quickly, in an accelerated manner and leverage big data analysis tools and techniques to foster better business decision-making.
