What DOT&E's Following
To keep pace with new technologies in the DoD acquisition pipeline and new concepts of operation, as well as ever-changing global threats, DOT&E is focusing on revolutionizing test and evaluation.  This venture, which is critical to national security and maintaining a combat-credible force, will entail revamping T&E infrastructure, tools, methods and processes, and skillsets.  DOT&E is seeking ideas and tangible solutions in each of these areas, and plans to cast a wide net.  We also are watching science and technology development to see what kinds of systems we may need to test in the future so that the DoD T&E ecosystem will be prepared.  Below is some of the research we’re following.
