There is also potential in NSD to implement a practice that is currently employed in BED—namely, the accumulation of unique, world-class data sets from experimental and/or modeling efforts and the documenting of these data sets in ways that will allow them to be useful both to ARL in its future efforts and to the larger R&D community. Challenges in Battlefield Environment Studies The research portfolio of the BED has for years been an exemplar of a good balance between modeling and experimental efforts—especially, for example, in testing in realistic theaters such as at the world-class facilities at White Sands, New Mexico, and in multidisciplinary efforts such as the use of HPC.
