Retired Navy pilot and first AFCEA Senior Service Fellow, Vinny DiGirolamo, has served as Corporate President of a major Steel Manufacturing and Software Development company, was an Independent Consultant to the DOD in both Nuclear and Tactical C4ISR, founder of a Small Business iDevice Repair Chain, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Maryland University College (UMUC).
Vinny has led and facilitated multi-Agency, multi-National, engineering, and operational working groups at the highest levels in the DoD addressing both Nuclear C3 (NC3) and Joint tactical environments. As Corporate President, he successfully implemented multiple strategic plans, business development campaigns, and marketing initiatives that yielded substantial returns on investments (>300%) and opened five new markets that transformed whole industries.
Cofounded a successful small business that sold to Verizon, was President of a Steel Manufacturing and software development company, and was an independent consultant to the DoD for 30 years.
I am an expert in facilitating strategic planning, building plans and budgets, and training engineers, and information systems professionals.
The Office of the Under Secretary of Defence (Research and Engineering) recently released guidance on a new engineering approach called, Mission Engineering. Vinny created the Mission Engineering "M" and has published a dozen videos on what Mission Engineering is (3 are public) and plans to teach it once the second version of the OUSD (R&E) Mission Engineering document is released in 2023.

Companies will continue to capture new programs based on their track record of proven performance, first-class engineering, acceptable pricing, and their ability to deliver the requisite capabilities. Likewise, companies can no longer afford to be successful on their own merits as evidenced by the repeated necessity to partner with multiple businesses on every new proposal.
Therefore, now is not the time for limited thinking where industry works in isolation away from their competition or considers the evolving Mission Engineering discipline as the defining measure of a program’s ability to capture.
Teaching Mission Engineering principles and encouraging its practice is not about gaining or giving away a competitive advantage. It is about an opportunity for setting the pace, raising the bar, inspiring cooperation, improving and leveraging internal and external corporate
relationships and resources, reinvigorating the focus on the warfighter, using budding new technologies to model and characterize a mission, and setting a progressive standard of doing business across the DOD.
