Dr. Jason Hall

Mr. G. Derrick Hinton is a member of the Senior Executive Service with a 20-year civilian career in the Department of Defense. In his current role as the Principal Deputy Director, Test Resource Management Center (TRMC) within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, Mr. Hinton is the principal staff assistant and advisor to the Director, TRMC for all matters pertaining to assessment of and strategic planning for the Major Range and Test Facility Base (MRTFB); these responsibilities include annual certification of the Military Department and Defense Agency Test and Evaluation (T&E) budgets and development of the Congressionally-directed biennial Strategic Plan for DoD Test and Evaluation Resources. In addition he oversees the management of the Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program (CTEIP), the Test and Evaluation/Science and Technology (T&E/S&T) Program, and the Joint Mission Environment Test Capability Program, whose annual budgets collectively total over $250M.

Mr. Hinton began his career serving in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from 1985 to 1991, joining the DoD civilian workforce in 1989 as a Test Engineer responsible for munitions T&E with the 46th Test Wing at Eglin Air Force Base, FL.

In 1996, Mr. Hinton joined the AT&L team, initially in the Office of the Director, Test, Systems Engineering, and Evaluation, transitioning to the Office of the Director, Operational Test and Evaluation in 2001, and finally joining the Test Resource Management Center in 2005. During his tenure with AT&L, Mr. Hinton has made significant contributions to MRTFB policy and T&E investment programs, most recently while dual-hatted as Program Manager for both CTEIP and the T&E/S&T Program. In this capacity, he executed a combined annual budget of approximately $200M, led management of all instrumentation development efforts sponsored by TRMC, and held responsibility for maturing and transitioning technology to enhance the overall DoD T&E capability. Mr. Hinton successfully ensured the use of a corporate investment approach to combine Service and Defense Agency T&E needs, thereby maximizing opportunities for Joint and multi-Service efforts and eliminating unwarranted duplication of test capabilities across the MRTFB.

Mr. Hinton holds a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from the University of Alabama, a Masters of Public Administration, and an Acquisition Core Level III Certification in Test and Evaluation from the Defense Acquisition University. Moreover, he serves as co-chair of the Range Spectrum Requirements Working Group, which develops policies to mitigate radio frequency spectrum encroachment at MRTFB activities.
