PROGRAM OVERVIEW

 As the DoD embarks on developing its capabilities to support a multi-domain operational environment (also known as the Joint All Domain C2), execution of the identified initiatives will require application of system of systems principles to assure a robust and effective solution. These principles and their application to adapting to multiservice, multinational, multi-platform players, will facilitate the creation of a flexible infrastructure capable of conducting more operationally realistic test and training. The resultant distributed and integrated test and training environment will enhance readiness. This workshop will discuss selected tenets of this support and address how to apply these tenants to test planning, test support and will include test capability modernization current and future needs. Considerations such as cyber, C4I , distributed testing, modeling and simulations, autonomous systems, hypersonic systems, directed energy, spectrum, advanced instrumentation systems, and certainly Big Data will lead to a thorough and relevant discourse at this workshop. Key speakers, town halls and technical sessions will be part of a program to identify challenges, solutions, innovations and a future state; all contributing to moving us closer to creation of an infrastructure and principles, conducive to testing and training in support of multi-domain operations. 

CALLS FOR PAPERS

 Sessions will be unclassified and open to the general T&E community, however, restricted sessions (up to FOUO) may be made available. Abstracts will be reviewed for a presentation during a technical session or as a poster paper. Abstracts accepted for presentation, along with the slides, will be available on the online proceedings for attendees after the Workshop concludes.

Abstracts should be non-commercial in scope, pertinent to conference topic, no longer than 500 words, and releasable to the general public. Complete the abstract submission form and email to MDO@itea.orgAbstracts due 1 April 2022.
