E.1. Archive parameters, methods, measurements, and test conditions during T&E of detectors.

E.2. Consider archiving raw data collected by deployed systems to guide future development of detectors through performance evaluation.


Recommendation F1: For priority DOD scenarios, an evaluation of uncertainty in the science, measurements, and situational awareness should be conducted so that resources can be invested in reducing the largest uncertainties that impact decision making.


Recommendation F2: An applied science program should be designed and executed to obtain information that will both improve the accuracy of the equation and help evaluate threats and their inherent uncertainties. This will require information about different biothreat agents, instrumentation types, and scenarios important to DOD.
