Experimental Facilities Support Services
DSI supports the U.S. Department of Defense by conducting field and range experiments and military-supportive range operations and maintenance. DSI obtains a wide variety of technical data on new concepts and improvements to existing military systems.
Through the collection of technical data, in support of efforts to solve identified problems with fielded systems, DSI conducts both traditional standard tests and state-of-the-art nonstandard experiments. DSI also develops new techniques for measuring critical data that vary in scale from laboratory microscopy at the molecular dimensions to field experiments on full-up systems.
DSI’s long, sustained history of facilities support services and range operations has led to experiments in support of basic and applied research and analyses related to weapons, munitions, materials, manufacturing processes, and survivability/lethality of military personnel and materiel. We study and evaluate the military equipment and weapons systems of today and tomorrow.
