T & E Symposium: Forging the 21st Century T&E Tools in an Era of Great Power Competition

This event qualifies for 20 CPEs

The current Global Power Competition (GPC) climate can pose a change to the acquisition and fielding process of most systems. It is important to understand the 21st Century T&E Tools to improve testing to meet the GPC demand. How will the military budget, DoD, DHS, and Commercial Industry adjust in a time of risk and change? Is your organization ready?


This year the Symposium will be coordinated by the Hampton Roads Chapter with Volunteers from across the entire ITEA community. Please plan on both attending, and more importantly, participating in this year’s Annual Symposium. Join us and help us explore these ideas and others related to “Forging the 21st Century T&E Tools in an Era of Great Power Competition’” as part of our 39th Annual International Symposium.


Please join us in Virginia Beach, VA as members of the T&E community from academia, industry, and government come together to address the challenges associated with the great power competition. Keynote speakers, Technical Exchange panels, technical sessions, tutorials and exhibits will be part of this program. Come share your thoughts, connect with others, and learn from some of the leading experts at this Symposium.
