This summary serves as a stand-alone document, as well as part of this report. For that reason, the reader will find some duplication of verbiage and figures between the summary and the full report. The Joint Advanced Distributed Simulation JADS Joint Test and Evaluation JTE was chartered by the deputy director, Test, Systems Engineering and Evaluation Test and Evaluation, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense Acquisition and Technology in October 1994 to investigate the utility of advanced distributed simulation ADS technologies for support of developmental test and evaluation DTE and operational test and evaluation OTE. The program is Air Force led with Army and Navy participation. JADS Joint Test Force JTF manning currently includes 18 Air Force, 4 Air Force civilians, 12 Army, and 1 Navy civilian. Science Applications International Corporation and the Georgia Tech Research Institute provide contracted technical support. The program is currently scheduled to end in March 2000. The JADS JTF is directly investigating ADS applications in three slices of the test and evaluation TE spectrum the System Integration Test SIT which explored ADS support of air-to-air missile testing the End-to-End ETE Test which is investigating ADS support for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveiliance, and reconnaissance C4ISR testing and the Electronic Warfare EW Test which is exploring ADS support for EW testing. The JTF is also chartered to observe or participate at a modest level in ADS activities sponsored and conducted by other agencies in an effort to broaden conclusions developed in the three dedicated test areas.
