Capabilities Development for Rapid Transition
Definition/Scope: Capabilities Development for Rapid Transition is a process that identifies non-program of record, nonstandard systems or pieces of equipment to be rapidly transitioned into an acquisition program. It also identifies other non-equipment capabilities that merit consideration as potential enduring Army capabilities. The intent of the process is to enter the formal developments process at a later stage reducing time from the development cycle. An iteration of CDRT lasts six months. It primarily considers material capabilities and these issues are worked in close coordination with a variety of Army agencies (TRADOC, AMC, and Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisitions, Logistics, and Technology to name a few).
