Improvised Explosive Devices continue to harass, maim, and kill innocent men, women, and children, as well as numerous coalition and U.S. forces. To combat this terror, the U.S. government has employed significant resources across a diverse range of dedicated researchers and testers. The urgency of their task cannot be overemphasized. However, in working so diligently to test the separate components of a defeat system, it is hypothesized that opportunities are being missed which could effectively utilize all of the information available across the test enterprise. The purpose of this thesis is to identify the organizations and activities involved, the information shared, and the processes employed by organizations within the JIEDDO Test Board (JTB). The objective is to provide an accurate representation of the process, and where the main decision points and bottlenecks occur. The conclusions achieved by this research are provided to enhance the JIEDDO test process system. The goal of this study of the JIEDDO process is to contribute to improving information sharing and knowledge management among stakeholders involved in the JIEDDO Test Board Enterprise.
