The Defense of Jisr al-Doreaa: With E. D. Swinton's ''The Defence of Duffer's Drift''

Following the invasion of Iraq in 2003 the U. S. army stumbled on itself in a conflict with a deadly and adaptive insurgency, the place the divisions among enemy and best friend have been ambiguous at most sensible, and dealing with the neighborhood inhabitants used to be crucial for daily survival. From the teachings they discovered in the course of a number of excursions of accountability in Iraq, American veterans have penned The protection of Jisr al-Doreaa, an academic parable of counterinsurgency that addresses the myriad of problems linked to warfare within the postmodern period.

In these cases, the OT agency, with the concurrence of DOT&E, can use data from other testing, such as hardware-in-the-loop testing and M&S,3 to independently evaluate likely operational effectiveness and suitability. The OT agency’s involvement does not stop with the completion of dedicated OT. It must forward an IOT&E report to the Secretary of Defense and Congress. The agency also must conduct follow-on operational T&E (FOT&E) after the full-rate production decision to • finish any incomplete IOT&E testing • verify correction of IOT&E deficiencies _____________ 2 An ACAT II program is one that a service secretary estimates will require an expenditure of $140 million (FY 2000$) in RDT&E funds or more than $660 million (FY 2000$) in procurement but less than the thresholds for an ACAT I program (see footnote 3) (DoD 5000 Interim Guidance [since superseded by new guidance]).

Later sections in this chapter describe operational and live-fire testing in greater detail. Defense acquisition, which includes T&E activities, has continued to evolve since the early 1990s as increasing pressures on defense budgets have driven the rationalization and streamlining of the process. The current emphasis is on time-phased system requirements so that improvements in capabilities are added incrementally, as supporting technologies mature. This strategy, often called evolutionary acquisition or spiral development, presumably reduces costs, risks, and development time.

The T&E Process 23 of the test article under a range of conditions to reduce the risk of proceeding to the next step in development to an acceptable level. Conduct Pretest Analysis Before testing begins, the test matrix is evaluated to ensure that it will produce the required data while making efficient use of test resources. Current knowledge, simulations, and other analyses are used to help predict the results to be observed. 5 Outside technical experts then review the detailed test plan. Conduct Test Prior to conducting the test, the team must select specific test points from the test matrix.
