29th Annual International Test and Evaluation Symposium
September 17 - 20, 2012 - Huntington Beach, California
Agility, flexibility, and accelerated testing will be increasingly demanded of our T&E workforce and our testing facilities. Declaring this as a challenge is easy; doing it is difficult. How will DoD and other government T&E leaders, in cooperation with industry and academia, develop the workforce and evolve the T&E resources to meet the future needs? The solution probably relies on a combination of policy, process, and facility changes, making partnering and integrated test commonplace, and developing the current and future workforce equipped to scientifically test faster.
