IV. SUPPORTING CAPABILITIES

The missile defense program makes significant investments in developing and maintaining support capabilities--most having potential applications for other Army technology development programs. These capabilities include special-purpose equipment and computers, simulation and modeling, assessment technology, test and evaluation technology, and facilities and ranges. They offer unique opportunities for enhancing the Army Technology Base with data and information derived from assessments, analyses, evaluations, experiments, demonstrations, and tests of both strategic and tactical systems.
