ABSTRACT: Twenty-first century defense requires a whole new set of paradigms when it comes to realistically dealing with the impact of new technology in the development of major defense weapons systems, the changing face of defense threats and the new development and implementation of defense policy on test, evaluation and acquisition. Senior defense officials from the United States, Canada and other allied nations came together to participate in this International Congress and Exhibition. The congress devoted the first day to providing a forum that featured tutorials on topics ranging from how to submit proposals for foreign comparative testing, to comparisons on how the United States, Canada, and other allied nations conduct test and evaluation; from independent test and evaluation of commercial products to the use of modeling and simulation to support test, evaluation and acquisition.
