Call for Presentations

The NDIA T&E Division invites high-quality, professional presentations that reflect the theme and address the topics being featured in the conference. Selected presentations will reflect the successes, and challenges, that organizations are experiencing in innovative approaches to T&E support of DoD systems.

The National Defense Strategy (NDS) calls on the Defense community to continuously deliver performance with affordability and speed.  Modernized T&E faces challenges (process, technological, and cross-domain complexity) in enabling the NDS.  During this conference, senior Test & Evaluation leaders will present their views on the challenges ahead on how Industry and Government can partner together for achieving the critical goals of the NDS.

DoD is investing broadly in military applications of autonomy, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, including rapid application of commercial breakthroughs, to gain competitive military advantages.  These technologies present significant T&E challenges to the Defense community requiring innovative approaches to support of rapid adoption and fielding.
