Directed energy (DE) 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 (T&E) 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 ninth 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. In addition, important issues regarding
the vulnerability of other, more conventional systems are
also of great interest to the DE T&E community. This
conference provides a forum to discuss the current
and future issues facing DE T&E.
