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.
