Mission

The Test & Evaluation (T&E) Division encourages informed dialogue between the private and public sectors on defense T&E issues; champions the development of T&E policies that improve the developmental, operational and live-fire T&E process; and builds partnerships between the private and public sectors. Focusing mainly on developmental, operational and live-fire testing, the division supports an annual symposium, a live-fire T&E event every 18 months and quarterly meetings of NDIAs Industrial Committee on Test & Evaluation. The division also presents the Walter Hollis Award for Lifetime Achievement in Defense Test and Evaluation, the Arthur Stein Award for Lifetime Achievement in Live-Fire Test and Evaluation and the Tester of the Year Awards.
