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.
