Termination of the Evaluation of the DoD’s Strategy to Test Space-Based Systems in Contested Environments (Project No. D2020-DEV0SN-0181.000)


We announced the subject audit on September 28, 2020, (attached). The objective of this evaluation was to determine the extent to which the DoD has developed and implemented a strategy for an integrated test program to validate the survivability of space-based systems in contested space environments. We are terminating this evaluation because the coronavirus disease–2019 pandemic affected the operational environment and the team’s ability to effectively complete the evaluation. Furthermore, during the course of the suspension of our evaluation, the announced objective became overcome by events.
