THE BIG THREE
• Three Key Points I continue to drive home with the
workforce and our customers.
– 1. We take our mission seriously, we don’t take
ourselves seriously.
– 2. Our job is to get our customers to their finish
line.
– 3. We want our customers to want us on their
teams, not have to have us on their teams.

Transforming
• As a necessity due the Army’s role with MI-17 and
furthered now with the adoption of DOD Directive
5030.61…
– AED’s role now includes validating/verifying
processes rather than conducting detailed
engineering data analysis when determining
airworthiness acceptability of foreign
airworthiness authorities.

WHAT LIES AHEAD
• Sequestration isn’t going away anytime soon
• Our customer budgets are shrinking
– 80+ % of our money comes from our customers…
• Continued “quality of life” pressures
• Hiring freeze – so struggling to build the bench
• All that said:
– AED will continue to make the choice to be happy
and motivated.
– We are a proud organization that looks forward to
continuing to provide quality and timely products
to our customers.
