Abstract:

On February 18, 2009, ITEA sponsored a workshop on Future Defense Spending and the Implications for Test and Evaluation, to focus on the impact of the economic downturn and the change of administration on Defense system acquisitions and test and evaluation TE. The final panel of the day featured the Department of Defenses senior TE leadership, past and present Phil Coyle, Jack Krings, Tom Christie, and Chuck McQueary. The four Directors of Operational Test and Evaluation answered 13 questions. Their answers offer insight into defense leadership processes and TE considerations that we rarely have the opportunity to see in such a comprehensive manner, offer important insights into challenges the defense TE community has faced, and may portend the nature of challenges that lay ahead.
