The US Defense Acquisition System is the largest, the most complex, the most rigorous and the most steady acquisition system in the world, and it has made an outstanding contribution to maintaining the military dominance. In recent years, under the guidance of the national defense strategy, the United States has been accelerating the process of adjusting and improving its defense acquisition system in order to ensure the sustainable development of its technology advantage in the military field. In 2020, the US Department of Defense summarized the experience and lessons learned from acquisition reforms and made significant changes to Department of Defense Directive 5000.01, "Defense Acquisition System", to ensure the sustainable development of military technological superiority. Firstly, this paper briefly introduces the background of this evolution; secondly, it analyses the content of this evolution from two dimensions of policy and responsibility by exploring innovations and philosophy of the evolution to gain some insight into the development trend in the defense acquisition system; finally, on the basis of former analysis, it formulates suggestions from four aspects, such as regulations and policies, and the application of new technology, in order to provide reference to our military equipment acquisition work.
