Abstract:

Operational Test and Evaluation Capability Improvement project is a focused, cohesive initiative to establish and maintain a distributed Department of Defense capability to conduct OTE on conventional weapons systems in the most realistic environment that is reasonably attainable. Improved OTE capability will allow DoD to make better production decisions and to better understand our current combat potential with existing weapons systems. This will be a continuing program as additional instrumentation and threat requirements are reviewed by the Services and the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The acquisition of the individual elements will be based on the priority of needs of the operational testing community. The Director of Operational Test and Evaluations project funds DOTEs costs for oversight of DoD OTE. Oversight responsibilities require the DOTE to become involved in any or all phases of OTE including advance test planning test conduct, data reduction and analysis evaluation and reporting. This project primarily funds contract technical and analytical support for DOTE program specific and test capability planning oversight activities. Remaining funds are used to pay for program specific travel. Keywords Military budgets Military research Weapons Weapon system Descriptive Summaries Air-land-sea environment.
