Developmental Testing Directorate (DTD)
The Developmental Testing Directorate (DTD) works hand-in-hand with our developers as we test and validate our entire product line, from advanced prototyping of a new concept through the upgrade engineering of a seasoned product. We rigorously evaluate and verify the capabilities of each product within its own operational environment, including the external fielding of equipment to key targeted user groups. The recently expanded indoor testing center now includes office space, a team room and lab in addition to our existing 20,000-square-foot facility. This state-of-the-art prototyping area offers simulated, extreme high-stress conditions commonly experienced in operational environments and also serves as an educational/training resource for tactical units, test teams and organizations worldwide.
To further support this robust product development agenda, NAR continues to aggressively enhance our growing Online Reference Library featuring our flagship 3D Medical Training Series in high definition. These invaluable audio visual aids explain the purpose and vision of specific gear, provide New Equipment Training (NET) and give guidelines for each product's intended use. Additional support materials, such as white papers, product information sheets and instructions for use are also available for download from the Video Download page or the "video tab" on the individual product pages. Our commitment to these educational resources ensures that you are informed, equipped and optimized for saving lives.
