PROGRAM OVERVIEW

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.

This workshop is hosted by the Antelope Valley Chapter located at the center of the Aerospace Testing Universe.

CALL FOR PAPERS

 Sessions will be unclassified and open to the general T&E community, however, restricted sessions (up to Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)) may be made available. Abstracts will be reviewed for a presentation during a technical session or as a poster paper. Abstracts accepted for presentation, along with the slides, will be available on the online proceedings for attendees after the Workshop concludes.

Why Attend

For 40 years the International Test and Evaluation Association (ITEA), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit education organization, has been advancing the exchange of technical, programmatic, and acquisition information among the test and evaluation community. ITEA members come together to learn and share with others from industry, government, and academia, who are involved with the development and application of the policies and techniques used to assess effectiveness, reliability, interoperability, and safety of existing, legacy, and future technology-based weapon and non-weapon systems and products throughout their life-cycle.

Almost everyone involved with Test and Evaluation has had to deal with accelerated test plans, limited manpower, red tape, broken test articles, and of course, a shrinking budget. However, seldom do the expectations of the customers or the demands on our war-fighters decrease with the corresponding lack of resources. We must accomplish the mission! Our war-fighters, our citizens, our allies, our country depends on it! So, how do we accomplish the mission on a constrained budget? When we are limited to funds that will barely keep us “running”, much less accelerating, what do we do? This is the focus of the 2021 ITEA Test Instrumentation Workshop: Shaping the Future of T&E. We invite you to come and share lessons learned, new solutions (material and non-material) and more efficient.

Our aerospace ranges and test facilities are national assets which utilizes resources that are very relevant to the instrumentation community. Personnel from these facilities attend this event to promote and stimulate technical growth in instrumentation and its allied arts and sciences. This is accomplished through participation in technical forums, educational activities, and technical publications. It is highly recommended that test and instrumentation personnel participate in the event in order keep our mostly commercial-off-the-shelf instrumentation science capabilities (flight test instrumentation, telemetry data acquisition, and data display) at a sufficient state to promote safe and effective test and evaluation. 

Participation in the event ensures that today’s test professionals learn test best practices from industry, other government agencies and partner nations.  Use of advanced commercial instrumentation and measurement in test and evaluation increases safety, reduces cost, schedule and technical risk to the developers to ensure deployment of mission effective and suitable systems that will ultimately benefit the war-fighter. Exposure at events such as these ensures the test professional stays current in its telemetry capabilities to support flight test.
