Abstract : This study examines how systems analysis and test and evaluation can be improved within the combat developments process. The study responds to a 16 December 1971 directive from the Commanding General, USACDC, to the Deputy Commanding General, USACDC. That directive requested the DCG to take whatever measures are necessary to develop answers to the following questions: (a) Given our currently authorized resources, what is the most feasible, best balanced schedule for FY 1972-1973 for CDC to execute its responsibilities for the entire array of tests and experiments, including but not limited to, DST, ETIST, EST, Troop Test, ICTT, CDEC Experiments, MASSTER Test, joint Tests, etc?; (b) In light of the growing demand for more and better testing and evaluation of military equipment (and related concepts, doctrine and organization), what is the best way for CDC to organize and distribute its resources (including related ORSA assets) for (1) field experimentation, and (2) analysis and evaluation of tests and experiments? Volume I contains the basic report - - the results of our analysis of the issues, conclusions and recommendations. This volume contains our detailed analysis of the basic issues -- the CD Process, Concept of Operations, Systems Analysis, Test and Evaluation, and HQ CDC. This report could not have been prepared without the major assistance provided by CDEC, the Groups and members of HQ CDC, all of whom supported the SATE Study Team.
