Directed Energy Test & Evaluation Conference 2007
7-9 August 2007
Albuquerque, New Mexico|
|Platinum Conference Sponsor
Co-Hosted by the
International Test & Evaluation Association
Directed energy is an important and expanding technology area for the military.
Taken to include High Energy Laser (HEL) and High Power Microwave (HPM) systems, DE is creating a new class of
weapons. Military test and evaluation is currently adapting to these radically new technologies. New measures, methods,
and facilities are required for adequate T&E of these systems.
The purpose of this sixth annual conference was to continue exchanging insights, experiences,
and ideas regarding DE T&E. As major DE systems progress through the various phases of T&E,
critical questions arise regarding our ability to perform appropriate and affordable T&E.
Important issues regarding the vulnerability of other, more conventional systems are also of
great interest to the DE T&E community. This conference provided a forum to discuss the current
and future issues facing DE T&E. The final program is available
here in PDF form.
