This full test strategy, shown in Figure 14, allowed the PM to quickly determine which vehicles met minimum requirements and send them into production. After that, the DT-C2 and C3 tests were designed and used to provide full characterization of the vehicle for potential design changes, future procurement decisions, and for the long-term benefit of the vehicle’s program office and users. This test strategy represents a hybrid approach in that it combines developmental, operational, and live fire testing, rather than conducting them as separate phases of the test and evaluation program. Also notable is that given the urgent need and rapid fielding of these vehicles as they came off production lines, the program still conducted an initial operational test and evaluation (IOT&E). This month-long test, which provides required feedback for any FRP decision, was conducted in September 2007 at Yuma Proving Ground. At this
