The Industrial Committee on Operational Test and Evaluation (ICOTE) is run by the Test & Evaluation Division with a mission to gain feedback from senior industry representatives, discuss OSD and military service policies which affect relationships with suppliers, discuss emerging issues in government and industry which affect the readiness and capabilities of U.S. defense systems, and to cooperate on projects of mutual benefit to the ICOTE participants.

The ICOTE has forged a reputation as a productive forum for enhancing DoD-industry cooperation and collaboration in the pursuit of effective, efficient and economical test and evaluation processes, standards and procedures that will ensure quality products at affordable costs for the DoD. ICOTE meetings are held on a quarterly basis in varying venues.

Join us on July 14 for the next meeting. Registration for this event is by invitation only.
