National Review chairman and former assistant secretary of state John Hillen published an opinion piece, “On Iran: It’s Not about the Bomb, It’s about the Strategy,” in which he describes what it means, from a strategic perspective, about Iran and Yemen planning 14 direct flights weekly via Mahan Air between the two nations.

Not one trip will be carrying a passenger, Hillen says, but the planes instead serve as a mean for Iran to smuggle in large quantities of sophisticated weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

Our concerns as a nation, Hillen argues, shouldn’t be about signing arms control agreements with Iran, but instead focus on their geo-strategy.

In just the past five years, Iran has created or consolidated well-armed satrapies from the Turkish border to the Gulf of Aden, and from the Mediterranean and Red Sea to the heart of Afghanistan.

RJ Narang, Renegade Technology Systems

When he’s not busy leading his company, Renegade Technology Systems (formerly Net Commerce Corporation), you can find President and CEO RJ Narang spending time with his family, including a two-year-old son, pulling for Washington’s sports teams and helping to promote political candidates he believes in.

However, the past year has been especially busy for Narang on the work front, as his company rebranded itself to better reflect its mission to serve government clients. “As a young company, we’re trying to adapt to a changing environment, so the rebranding shows that we’re willing to move forward in a new direction in an ever-changing atmosphere,” Narang said.

“Our underlying message is we’re not your father’s IT company, and are looking at new and unique ways to help our customers accomplish their goals.”

From Net Commerce Corporation to Renegade Technology Systems, Narang always strives to build compelling solutions in the often constrained environment of the government.

“We focus on a subset of narrowly tailored solutions, such as cybersecurity, network engineering and desktop administration,” Narang explained. “I think by focusing on these areas we execute well, we can differentiate ourselves from our competitors in the rest of the market.”

Another way to stay ahead of the competition is to stay ahead of the curve of new technology trends.

“I’m particularly excited about cyber security and the way that’s heading,” Narang said. He expects to see new opportunities arising on the heels of a year filled with cyber security news stories, such as the hacks at major retailers like Target. “I think the government has its eyes on strengthening that part of its portfolio and will be looking for companies like ours that handle cyber security well.”

Even though cyber threats loom in the horizon, the state of the industry is looking up, according to Narang.

“I’m really excited about an improving market. As the economy continues to improve, more opportunities will be presented to small businesses such as ourselves, which have been a little handcuffed due to pricing constraints and recent budget cuts,” he said.

“I think there will be a shift back to more mission-oriented opportunities as opposed to being strictly based on price.”

A graduate of American University, Narang knows his education went a long way toward preparing him for the challenges of being a government contractor. However, he admits that nothing prepared him more than the hands-on experience he gained early in his career.

“The biggest things I’ve taken away are the importance of relationships and communications in a working environment,” he said. “Without those two factors, it’s very difficult to be successful. I think an open line with everyone ensures a sense of collaboration and ownership of the process amongst your team.”

Narang also extends his appreciation of relationship building and open communication to his leadership roles. “I think the most important thing is to try to become part of the team,” he said. “I do that by having an open-door policy where folks can feel comfortable in knowing that they can come to you with their concerns and suggestions for improving processes or operations without repercussions. I try to take away that extra layer of hierarchy so that they can come to me directly.”

Cal Shintani, Oceus Networks

Cal Shintani is the Senior Vice President and Chief Growth Officer of Oceus Networks, a Reston-based contractor that provides broadband services and solutions worldwide in delivering high-speed voice, video and data communications to government and commercial industries.

Shintani focuses on growth strategies and implementation for Oceus Networks, including leading business development, sales, marketing, capture and proposals, and leading corporate development activities.

WashingtonExec recently spoke with Shintani about the technology procurement process, whether it helps or hinders innovation, and how to attract the coveted early adopter market in the contracting industry.

WashingtonExec: What challenges are government agencies facing when they buy emerging technology, and how can agencies prepare themselves to meet that challenge?

Cal Shintani: The challenge for government agencies is that our traditional procurement process requires them to have a minimum of two, normally three, quotes when they are acquiring anything. So if you’re a government acquisition official trying to buy emerging technology, it’s really hard to find three of this new widget or app, for example. So how do you compare prices on something that is all by itself? That’s a tough challenge.

The government recognizes this challenge and looks at it a couple different ways. They have a few contract vehicles that allow for emerging technology, recognizing that they’re not always going to get two or three quotes, but these contracts let them at least try the technology on a trial basis. Then there are some agencies that have rapid fielding procurement, through which they can try something, take it out into the field and send it back before they conduct a larger procurement. For the government to meet procurement challenges, it must engage in rapid fielding procurement and test emerging technology without buying it in large volume.

WashingtonExec: Do you think that any of this is prohibitive, as far as innovation goes for the government?

Cal Shintani: I think it depends on the agency. Some parts of the government have a better handle than others, which is also true of us in industry — some are really good at innovating and some aren’t.

The agencies that are the best at innovating also have a good culture of not avoiding failure, but allowing themselves to try a pilot and if it doesn’t quite work, that’s okay.

The hardest part from a government perspective is that if you spend money to try something and it doesn’t work, you have to wonder if you used tax dollars wisely. There are more government agencies that, if they try something in a small way, and see that it doesn’t work, but it leads to a better procurement later, they think that’s a good use of their money. But that’s a hard perspective for our government officials to adopt, who must be very cognizant of limited budgets.

WashingtonExec: How can agencies ensure that they’re getting a good deal when they purchase new technologies and services?

Cal Shintani: There are a couple of ways to look at it. Most of our customers are looking at the total cost of ownership, including support, spare parts and changes in operation and training, instead of how much it costs simply to purchase the technology. However, they also look at how much time and money they will save as a result of it. A lot of agencies are also looking at the replacement strategy. They know that a laptop is only going to last a year-and-a-half or two years, so they include in their procurement how to replace that technology as they move along.

Something we focus on at Oceus Networks is offering our customers best value and, in order to win a particular procurement, we have to do a really good job explaining how the extra dollars translate into better capability, better mission support and how it will save them money or effort in the future. All of those tradeoffs are involved when the customer is looking at how they can purchase goods and services.

WashingtonExec: How do you stay ahead of the competition when you are going after early adopters in the industry?

WashingtonExec: We work very hard to listen to and understand customer requirements by going out into the field and participating in exercises with our customers.

Most of our customers are Department of Defense and Public Safety, so we are literally out in the field, our guys are in tents, wearing khakis, getting muddy or cold, that sort of stuff. This is important because we have to understand the environment in which our customers operate.

We get a lot of feedback from those exercises. When our products are still in beta stage, a few of our customers will take them through their working environment and give us feedback. Based upon that feedback, we develop the next iteration and go back and take it to those customers. Recently, we established offices right outside the gates of some of our key customers, because it’s one thing to participate in a planned exercise, it’s another thing when your customer has an idea and they need you right away. Now, one of our lead engineers can go right inside the gate and interact with the customer.

As a company, the biggest thing is to stay ahead of the technology curve — to understand where our customers are and then take commercial technology to apply it in different ways or adapt it for DoD and law enforcement use. We have really good engineers who go out to tech conferences to understand what’s out there. We study what’s new in our arena, like telecommunication and security, but we also go to conferences focusing on where we think we may want to go in the future. For example, Internet of Things or machine-to-machine are two of the up-and-coming applications of technology, so we send folks to those kinds of conferences to understand where commercial industry is going and how we might be able to apply that to the federal government.

WashingtonExec: Do you have any hobbies or interests that you would like to share with our readers?

Cal Shintani: I enjoy going to plays, musicals, concerts and dance performances. The D.C. metro area has tons of opportunities, and I don’t just go to the bigger places like the Kennedy Center or Wolf Trap (although I do like to go there), but I also like to try some of the new theaters like Synetic Theater or Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company; they try things a little differently, so that’s fun to do.

I recently attended Synetic Theater and saw their latest “silent Shakespeare” play. Synetic performed a silent version of “Much Ado About Nothing” – no words, just music, mime, action and dance. You have to see one of these performances to really appreciate the innovation and creativity of this theater company.
