Symposium Overview

Warfighter and Weapons Systems are evolving at a rapid pace in response to the requirements for existing and potential future needs. These systems, in general, are evolving to be faster, longer range, more sophisticated, more lethal, costlier, and, in some cases, boasting completely new technologies and techniques. The T&E environments must evolve to enable the test and training of these new systems, and they must be ready when the systems enter test. How will your organizations meet this challenge? Are your technologies and capabilities evolving at a pace that ensures your part of the Global T&E Environment will be relevant and useful for future warfighter and weapons systems support?

We encourage you to help us explore these ideas and others related to “Global T&E Environment in 2025 and Beyond” as part of our 35th Annual International Symposium.
