directorate is currently engaged in supporting one of the Army's initial transformation efforts.
By providing technical and data collection support to Task Force Modularity, the directorate is assisting the Army in establishing its first unit of action.
Concurrently, work continues in the area of future combat systems testing. Due to its complexity and reliance on a network-centric-environment, the Future Force Test Directorate has been called upon to reexamine its current testing norms and to think "outside the box" in developing future testing parameters.
New testing procedures will be required in order to collect relevant test data on future combat systems units of action and units of employment which will be equipped with networked, modular systems capable of distributed seamless joint and combined operations over a vastly dispersed battlefield.
Meeting and overcoming the testing challenges that are posed by future combat systems continue to be the prime focus of the directorate's mission.
From the planning and execution of a series of limited user tests through the execution of a comprehensive initial operational test, the directorate's personnel remain dedicated to ensuring America's soldiers are provided with systems which have succeeded in realistic operational testing.
