23rd Test Instrumentation Workshop

Shaping the Future of T&E

Hosted by the ITEA Southern Nevada and Antelope Valley Chapter


This year’s workshop will bring together government, military, industry, and academia to develop our workforce to conquer the test and evaluation changes faced today and in the future. Those challenges range from evaluating the functionality of today’s systems such as 5th generation fighters, C2 systems, cyber assurance to hypersonic weapons and autonomous weapon systems such as UUVs.

CALL FOR PROBLEMS

The 2019 TIW Committee is looking for ideas that we can pursue as potential topics for the next ITEA TIW workshop. We need Session Chairs to pursue these topics to find subject matter experts and speaker who can potentially present some new approaches or solutions to these problems. This is what makes this a “Workshop” and why the ITEA TIW is a bit different; it can only be as good as YOU make it! Let’s talk instrumentation, telemetry, data processing, sensors, signal conditioning, data networks, test management, reporting, cyber… no idea too far out, no topic too weird—if it’s an issue we can try to address it. 

This is the ITEA TIW “Call-for-Problems”… this is YOUR Workshop, intended to answer your problems. What are the issues, topics, concerns, and problems you would like to see addressed at the 2019 Test Instrumentation Workshop? Are you doing something stimulating you think others would find interesting? What problems are stumping you? What processes do you think we need to do better? Talk to us  about your dirty laundry!
