The mission of the Intelligence Electronic Warfare Test Directorate is to plan, conduct, and report on assigned mission-based operational tests, assessments and experiments of intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), electronic warfare (EW), counter improvised explosive device (CIED), and biometric systems in order to provide essential information for the acquisition and fielding of systems in support of the U.S. Army, Joint Service, and National Agency customers.  IEWTD also provides threat and ISR modeling, simulation, and instrumentation (MS&I) support for internal and external test events.


An IEWTD that contributes to the Army's success on current and future battlefields by conducting realistic, objective mission-based operational tests and experiments on intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, electronic warfare, counter improvised explosive device, and biometric systems, equipment and doctrine using state-of-the-art technology.  IEWTD is driven to excellence by a professional military and civilian workforce motivated by a commitment to the American Soldier of the 21st century.

Who We Are

The Army's independent operational test directorate for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, electronic warfare, counter improvised explosive device, and biometric systems.

The Intelligence Systems Integration Laboratory, a state-of-the-art facility for the conduct of operational tests, experiments, demonstrations, training, and other distributed activities in a collaborative secure environment.

An organizational structure task organized and resourced to plan and conduct independent mission-based operational tests of ISR, EW, CIED, and BM systems, and their associated ground and airborne platforms, network environments, and intelligence processing systems.

What We Do

Provide robust live, virtual, and constructive synthetic operational test environments employing validated threat models and simulations under realistic battlefield conditions to test present and future systems.

Conduct operational assessments at worldwide locations to support rapid acquisition initiatives, the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO), and the Warfighter's urgent needs.

Develop validated intelligence and threat modeling and simulation tools.

Provide fully instrumented threat systems, dynamic realistic operational scenarios, and automated data extraction tools to measure system performance under test conditions.

Test the performance, effectiveness, suitability, and survivability of systems under mission-type scenarios.
