Concept Development & Experimentation
Concept Development & Experimentation (CD&E) is a science-oriented procedural model, designed to optimise the capabilities of armed forces across all levels of military actions and missions, especially against the background of the security-political challenges in the 21st Century.
CD&E uses a variety of different scientific procedures, methods and instruments. CD&E helps armed forces to determine, analyse and close capability gaps fast and in a mission-oriented manner. This concerns, among other aspects, the conceptual design, material, training, mission planning or the command structure.
