Know Before You Go


This year’s edition of the Test Instrumentation Workshop will support our need to be alert and aware of all technological developments that may have an impact on our test and evaluation operations. This workshop will discuss selected tenets of the various sensor instrumentation support to include the network, communications, and the massive resultant data. Plenary Discussions, tutorials and technical sessions will lead to a thorough and relevant discourse at this workshop and aid those in attendance, to prepare for the future. 

Please join us at the 2023 ITEA Test Instrumentation Workshop to share your experiences, lessons learned, and solutions to the problems we face in today’s constrained test and evaluation environments.
