Identify National Agency and other Service-developed TENCAP-related technologies and capabilities with potential to satisfy Operational Needs Statements, Joint Operational and Emergent Needs Statements, Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System requirements and documented gaps.
When directed, field and sustain quick reaction capabilities or niche systems.

Identify candidate prototypes suitable for integration into Programs of Record (PoRs) or retention as niche subsystems.
Maintain acquisition management integrity, inform, and coordinate with acquisition organizations to facilitate technology transfer, transition and/or insertion of TENCAP advanced developments to augment or establish material solutions to satisfy Army validated requirements.

Provide technical expertise and support to the Army, that includes: enabling new concepts; influencing operational architectures; integrating new and emerging TENCAP technologies into the Army force structure; facilitating identification and visibility of Army needs into Joint programs and systems; developing coherent enterprise solutions for identified ISR systems, architectures, and programs; and serving as technical expert and primary advisor for TENCAP systems and capabilities for Futures and Concepts Division, Army Futures Command (AFC).

Lead the Army’s advanced development, rapid prototyping, and integration of TENCAP capabilities. In coordination with the National Agencies: identify, sponsor, design, demonstrate, experiment, rapidly develop, test, and transition TENCAP systems, components, and capabilities to provide IC partners and selected theater and tactical ISR sensor data and capabilities to the Army’s current and future force.
