Abstract : In July 1993, the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) expressed concerned over the development process for airborne electronic combat systems. The committee stated one reason for this concern was the 'lack of a comprehensive, integrated, and clearly defined electronic combat test process' that all services would follow and thereby improve the acquisition system. In response, the DoD Director Test and Evaluation (T&E) convened a task force that included representatives from OSD, JCS, and the Services. This task force forwarded its recommendations in this final report in May 1994. In June 1994, OSD promulgated policy institutionalizing this T&E process for EW systems under OSD T&E oversight. This final report provides a history of key events and products leading to this new policy and a description of the T&E process for EW systems.
