Helping agencies execute total program life cycle management responsibilities for acquiring and delivering essential systems, information and services.

 

Using our in-depth understanding of the intricacies and interrelationships of government agencies and industry capabilities, Sabre helps develop winning strategies and assists our customers in executing their increasingly challenging missions.

Sabre is experienced at working in the austere budget environment that our clients face, both with Major Defense Acquisition Programs for Department of Defense (DoD) activities as well as the equally complex missions of federal civilian government agencies. We have deep, current, and relevant experience in all aspects of program support including budget development, cost estimating/management, and contract management. Combined with our in-house engineering, logistics, test and evaluation, and IT expertise, we work side by side and on Integrated Program Teams with our government clients to successfully plan, manage, and execute their programs.  As a CMMI and ISO certified company we bring a working knowledge of the most current best practices, as well as a rich history in lessons learned ensuring that all cost, schedule, and technical objectives are met.

CAPABILITIES

Program Management Support

Sabre program managers and program support personnel have specialized skills and experience in government programs at all levels across Department of Defense (DoD) and civilian agencies. While our client’s missions may differ, their needs and the tools/processes used to address those needs are similar. We employ industry recognized best practices and standards including International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) to provide business management capabilities to our clients.  In fact, Sabre is one of only six companies in the U.S. that is appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) v1.3 (Staged)-Maturity Level 3 (ML3) for Development (CMMI-DEV), Services plus Service System Development (SVC+SSD).  Source: CMMI Institute Published Appraisal Results (PARS).

SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR WORK

Data, Information Processing, and Web Modernization Support for Census Bureau

Sabre modernized the U.S. Census Bureau, Geography Division’s data and information processing environment, called the Master Address File/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (MAF/TIGER) System, from one that was “home grown” and arcane to one that is cutting-edge, portable, scalable, and takes advantage of modern technologies, virtualization, and service-oriented architectures. Sabre’s successful modernization of the Census Bureau business and technology environment is better at meeting the needs of customers and end users through the reliable capture, processing, reporting, and dissemination of complex statistical data via the web. Completion of these activities improved operational methods for the 2010 Census and realized significant cost reductions.

Of note: The Census Bureau’s MAF/TIGER System is the geographic database system that houses the data necessary for the successful operations census data collection by mail and in the field, the production of maps and other data products, and generating various reports and documents. The system uses KML (Keyhole Markup Language) file format used to display geographic data in tools such as Google Earth or Google Maps.

ONR S&T IPPTMS Study

Sabre successfully performed technology investigations including the Integrated Propulsion, Power and Thermal Management System (IPPTMS) Science and Technology Demonstration Study for the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and the United States Air Force. This effort employed a portfolio management process for capturing and organizing data in a way that maintained traceability to warfighter requirements and proved a valuable tool for stakeholders in answering the "why" of an integrated demonstration, and provided key insights into the "what" and "how" including: descriptive information on technology, integration and manufacturing readiness levels; programmatic information (including development and funding sources); assessment of technology maturity and impact of the same; Rough Order Of Magnitude (ROM) funding estimates for technology development; and demonstration requirements and rationale, including demonstration and risk information.Read More

Strategic Planning and POM Support for U.S. Army 

Sabre conducted a "Network Deep Dive" that addressed Army communications and networking Research and Development (R&D) investments across the Program Objective Memorandum (POM) looking across the Future Years Defense Program (FYDP).  The analyses focused on identifying gaps, priorities and requirements across the areas of wireless networking, spectrum, data driven information systems, commercial wireless, cyber, and systems integration.

Sabre developed Strategic Plans for the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development Engineering Center (CERDEC) Space & Terrestrial Communications Directorate (S&TCD) for communications, networking and cyber security programs and prepared long range strategic plans and technology roadmaps that included input from the Army Research Lab, Space and Missile Defense Command and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).  Significant efforts included facilitating collaboration and integration of the overall POM strategy across PEO C3T Program Managers as well as CERDEC S&TCD and Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD) to ensure a strong, cohesive budget submission that supported both near and long term Army needs. These plans and roadmaps, along with recommendations for implementation, were briefed to Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology ASA (ALT) Research and Technology, accepted and implemented with only minor refinements.
