Abstract : The primary objective of test and evaluation in the Department of Defense is to support the acquisition of reliable and effective weapon systems for the operating forces. In accomplishing this objective, a methodology is required that builds on close coupling of the various testing activities and emerging technology. This paper describes these relationships and develops alternative system concepts that lend themselves to improving test and evaluation through utilization of new technology and techniques to transfer essential information in a more effective manner.
