Abstract:

Testing in support of rapid acquisition is a process that sometimes comes without fully defined requirements and represents the Armys daily adaptation to battlefield realities. It is characterized by a responsive test process, streamlined decision making, and the need for test resources to already be in place to allow for rapid execution. Effort must be spent to fully characterize significant aspects of the operational environment and to continuously examine them to ensure that they remain relevant. The results must be repeatable and capable of withstanding intense scrutiny. In the fervor to provide something immediately, caution must be exercised to ensure that the solution is not worse than the problem, that is, something isnt always better than nothing.
