Field Testing Branch
The Field Testing Branch (FTB) performs the detailed planning and actual execution of the concept-based experiments. It also develops tactics, techniques, and procedures that enable the concept to be validated, and then trains the Experiment Force in those concepts. Finally, FTB, in close coordination with Technology Division, integrates commercial off-the-shelf, government, and developmental technologies into experiments.
