While not traditional ACAT programs, we also have a number of ongoing test infrastructure efforts and I'd like to mention two of them. The Test Grid provides instrumentation at Dugway Proving Ground for CB simulant field testing and includes dissemination systems, equipment support platforms, referee instrumentation and wireless data network management systems. The program supports an integrated and real- time test need for outdoor Chemical and Biological vapor and aerosol simulant releases to assess standoff sensors and point sensor arrays. The Test Grid Safari program will make this capability modular and transportable to test sites under multiple operational conditions to include maritime, tropical, cold weather, and desert. The Test Infrastructure Roadmap is a tool set to analyze test requirements across the enterprise with the goal of right-sizing the next generation of test infrastructure. It can guide new infrastructure development to meet emerging threat needs and novel technology applications. New infrastructure is important in diverse fields such as point surface detection, UAVs, and integration where limited past testing exists to support planned operational use.

The DR SKO identifies poten- tial Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and/or WMD precursors and determines levels of protection required to access or inhabit a sensitive site. The system supports dismounted Reconnaissance, Surveillance and CBRN Site Assessment missions to enable more detailed CBRN information reports for commanders. (U.S. Army)
