Live Experimentation Branch

The CDID Experimentation Division's (CDID-ED), Live Experimentation (LE) Branch is the experimentation arm of the Signal Center of Excellence.

The branch conducts operationally focused technical experiments and provides assessments of innovative soldiers2 concepts and technologies that support the warfighter and the requirements and acquisitions communities, focusing on Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6/7 (prototyping in a relevant / operational environment) and higher.

Additionally, the CDID-ED-LE branch provides technical support by providing technical expertise in support of rapid prototyping, near-term tech insertions, technical risk mitigation and large-scale technical integration.

Using its neutral position, the CDID-ED-LE branch can act as the "Honest Broker" between government and commercial entities, by providing unbiased assessments of technologies under consideration for procurement.
