Abstract:

In July 1993, the House Armed Services Committee HASC expressed concern over the development process for airborne electronic combat systems. The committee stated one reason for this concern was the lack of a comprehensive, integrated, and clearly defined electronic combat test process that all services would follow and thereby improve the acquisition system. In response, the DoD director, Test and Evaluation T and E convened a task force that included representatives from OSD, JCS, and the Services. This task force forwarded its recommendations in a final report in May 1994. In June 1994, OSD promulgated policy that institutionalized this T and E process for EW systems under OSD T and E oversight. This document describes the resulting T and E Process and delineates a step-by-step approach for its use with applicable systems in the acquisition process. This document has also been published as Appendix C of the task force final report cited above.
