The U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC) is responsible for the operational testing and evaluation of Army systems in development. ATEC requested that the National Research Council form the Panel on Operational Test Design and Evaluation of the Interim Armored Vehicle (Stryker). The charge to this panel was to explore three issues concerning the IOT plans for the Stryker/SBCT. First, the panel was asked to examine the measures selected to assess the performance and effectiveness of the Stryker/SBCT in comparison both to requirements and to the baseline system. Second, the panel was asked to review the test design for the Stryker/SBCT initial operational test to see whether it is consistent with best practices. Third, the panel was asked to identify the advantages and disadvantages of techniques for combining operational test data with data from other sources and types of use. In a previous report (appended to the current report) the panel presented findings, conclusions, and recommendations pertaining to the first two issues: measures of performance and effectiveness, and test design. In the current report, the panel discusses techniques for combining information.

This document reports the findings of the performance and operational evaluation tests conducted on the Mode Select (Mode S) Beacon System, in a full Mode S mode, enroute configuration collocated with a Common Digitizer Model-2 (CD-2) and Air Route Surveillance Radar (ARSR) system. The tests were conducted at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) William J. Hughes Technical Center and at the enroute Mode S keysite located at the St. Albans, Vermont, long range radar facility in conjunction with Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC), located in Nashua, New Hampshire. The Mode S systems under test were fully configured, dual-channel systems having all required external interfaces connected to actual National Airspace System (NAS) equipment, with the exception of the Maintenance Processor Subsystem (MPS), which was not ready for integration with the Mode S at the time of these tests. A combination of system optimization, surveillance performance and operational suitability testing were performed as part of this Operational Test and Evaluation (OT & E) effort. Test goals were to ensure proper operation of the Mode S sensor in Mode S mode of operation for an enroute configuration, while integrated with appropriate NAS equipment. The tests were conducted in accordance with procedures for OT & E stated in FAA Order 1810.4B. The format of this test report is in accordance with FAA-STD-024b.

Governing Nonprofit Organizations

The nonprofit sector is a vital component of our society and is allowed the greatest freedom to operate. The public understandably assumes that since nonprofit organizations are established to do good, the people who run nonprofits are altruistic, and the laws governing nonprofits have reflected this assumption. But as Marion Fremont-Smith argues, the rules that govern how nonprofits operate are inadequate, and the regulatory mechanisms designed to enforce the rules need improvement. Despite repeated instances of negligent management, self-interest at the expense of the charity, and outright fraud, nonprofits continue to receive minimal government regulation. In this time of increased demand for corporate accountability, the need to strengthen regulation of nonprofits is obvious. Fremont-Smith addresses this need from a historical, legal, and organizational perspective. She combines summaries and analysis of the substantive legal rules governing the behavior of charitable officers, directors, and trustees with descriptions of the federal and state regulatory schemes designed to enforce these rules. Her unique and exhaustive historical survey of the law of nonprofit organizations provides a foundation for her analysis of the effectiveness of current law and proposals for its improvement.

The Director, Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E) activities for Fiscal Year 2005 (FY05) are characterized by three dominant themes: providing information for acquisition decision makers, providing direct support to our warfighters, and assessing the adequacy of Test and Evaluation (T&E) resources for future testing needs. In support of acquisition, DOT&E published nine Beyond Low-Rate Initial Production Reports, including those for the highly visible and often controversial F-22 Raptor and V-22 Osprey. DOT&E monitored 279 Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAPs) and special interest programs. This included test adequacy reviews for 56 Test and Evaluation Master Plans (TEMPs), 10 Live Fire Test and Evaluation (LFT&E) strategies, and 50 individual Test and Evaluation Plans (TEPs) for specific test events. In continuing support to our war warfighters, the LFT&E staff monitored Service efforts to upgrade armor for tactical vehicles, as well as Service efforts to resolve personal body armor testing variances. DOT&E also provided T&E advice to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Joint Rapid Acquisition Cell (JRAC) to help ensure performance is demonstrated before fielding. The results of DOT&E Information Assurance (IA) assessments of legacy systems received wide visibility within the Department of Defense (DoD), including OSD, the Joint Staff, and the Combatant Commanders (COCOMs). The DOT&E Joint Test and Evaluation (JT&E) program acted in direct response to COCOM requests via its re-engineered Quick Reaction Test (QRT) process. In assessing future testing resource needs, DOT&E provides strategic planning inputs to the Defense Test Resource Management Center (DTRMC) to which several DOT&E responsibilities regarding T&E resources have been transferred. DOT&E also works with the individual Services to address future testing needs for air, land, and naval warfare.

The Houston Smart Commuter ITS Operational Test is assessing the potential to gain more efficient use of major travel corridors through greater utilization of high-occupancy commute modes, shifts in travel routes, and changes in time of travel through the application of innovative approaches using advanced technologies. The Houston Smart Commuter ITS Operational Test is a federally sponsored project and is being jointly funded by the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO), the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The project contains two different, but compatible, components. One component focuses on encouraging a mode shift from driving alone to riding the bus through the provision of real-time traffic and transit information. The second component encourages carpooling through the use of real-time ridematching services. This report documents the activities conducted on the Smart Commuter ITS Operation Test in FY 1995. These include finalizing and issuing the request for technical proposals for the real-time Information Delivery System, the development of informational brochures, coordinating the national and local evaluations, and other activities. The report also presents the anticipated activities and schedule for FY 1996.
