Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced a shakeup in the Defense Innovation Unit Experimental in Silicon Valley. The changes include a new leader, Raj Shah, who’s leaving technology company Palo Alto Networks. Shah will now report directly to Secretary Carter. Ben FitzGerald of the Center for a New American Security, along with his colleague at CNAS, Loren DeJonge Schulman, proposed changes to DIUx two weeks ago. Ben explained how their proposals matched up with Carter’s announcement on National Defense Week.
