What documentation is available on Joint Tests, Quick Reaction Tests, or Joint Technology Test Demonstrations reports related to U.S. hypersonic glide vehicles, advanced maneuverable reentry vehicles, hypersonic cruise missiles, or Joint Procedures for IWTAA of HGV (J-PITH)?

The Defense Systems Information Analysis Center (DSIAC) received a request for documentation available on Joint Tests (JTs), Quick Reaction Tests (QRTs), or Joint Technology Test Demonstrations reports related to U.S. hypersonic glide vehicles (HGVs), advanced maneuverable reentry vehicles, hypersonic cruise missiles, and Joint Procedures for IWTAA of HGV (J-PITH). DSIAC searched the Defense Technical Information Center Research and Engineering Gateway, Office of the Secretary of Defense’s Director of Operational Test and Evaluation annual fiscal year program reports, and open sources for potential documentation. Additionally, DSIAC reached out to the Joint Program Office for QRT and JT support. The set of information found was compiled and synthesized, along with questions for potential future research.
