In October of 2009, the United States Air Force (USAF) Test and Evaluation (T&E) community initiated work on an enterprise-wide initiative to improve collaboration across all phases of T&E. This paper provides an overview of the USAF aeropropulsion T&E capabilities and the way forward which are 1) an aligned T&E Enterprise using coordinated tactical and strategic goals, 2) a seamless T&E approach using independent Air Force assessments, 3) state-of-the-art T&E capabilities capable of testing current and future generation propulsion systems, and 4) improved propulsion acquisition and development processes. This paper includes a discussion of past difficulties and successes and focuses on the approach employed to realize USAF goals.
