Prototype Testing and Deployment

In implementing new technologies, the transition from prototype to deployment can be exciting, gratifying and daunting. Challenges abound. The technology may not be optimized for scaling. Production costs may be too high. Complex design packages can reduce interoperability and integration success. The prototype may not support rapid fielding. And, in the race to meet increasing requirements, bottlenecks can quickly form.
