This report provides the Director, Operational Test and Evaluations DOT and E operational assessment of the Next Generation Diagnostic System NGDS in support of a decision to field it to Air Force clinical laboratories in April 2017 prior to Initial Operational Test and Evaluation for shipboard operation and environmental sample analysis capability. The Army, Navy, and Air Force intend for NGDS to replace the currently fielded Joint Biological Agent Identification and Diagnostic System, which identifies biological warfare agents in clinical and environmental samples, to increase the breadth of diagnostic coverage and reduce the manpower, training, and logistics burden on deployable medical units.
