Land & Expeditionary Warfare

The Land and Expeditionary Warfare group plans, observes, and analyzes tests of the newest military vehicles, weapon systems, aircraft, and communications systems.  We observe operational testing of units equipped with these systems so we can understand what their new capabilities bring to the warfighter.  We also participate in testing of the newest generations of munitions, artillery, rockets, and missiles to examine their effectiveness and lethality against surrogate targets.  Often, testing of new systems is combined with high-fidelity hardware-in-the-loop simulations to estimate system performance across the full range of possible scenarios.  When testing systems with room for passengers, we may ride along while the testing is in progress.  Observing operational tests provides critical insights for subsequent analysis of test results, which we share in written reports.
