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?
