Reorganization Pays Off.

A reorganization of Defense Department test and evaluation operations over the past year has "dramatically improved" the department's ability to address the declining state of testing for new military technology, said Philip E. Coyle III, director of operational test and evaluation.

In 1999, Defense Secretary Cohen consolidated most of test and evaluation functions within Coyle's office, he explained to reporters. Coyle's office now oversees test ranges and facilities with a total of 18,000 square miles of land, 180,000 square miles of airspace and more than 30,000 personnel. But the test and evaluation workload is growing, while "resources ... are down significantly," Coyle said. "Investment funding is inadequate to fill the gap." In 1999, for example, $110 million was taken from the test line of the F-22 program, he said.
