his Conference will discuss the practical implications of T&E support to getting "game changing" technologies to the Warfighter. The partnership with DEPS allows for high energy laser and high-power microwave experimentation to be an integral component of our technical program.

  • What are the roles of DoD T&E organizations and the Major Range and Test Facility Bases (MRTFBs) in designing, planning, executing, and supporting these activities? 
  • Given that each Service has already embarked on significant prototype development and experimentation campaigns, with execution timelines that span years not decades, how do the Service and DoD T&E communities respond to rapidly emerging needs for instrumentation, infrastructure, and test methodologies to support these campaigns? 
  • How is testing in support of experimentation different than traditional T&E? How is it the same? 
  • How is testing is support of experimentation affected by the use of conceptual, developmental, and operational prototypes?
