HANSCOM AIR BASE, Mass. –To inform Hanscom region acquisition personnel of testing efforts and capabilities, the 96th cyberspace test group, detachment 1, located at Hanscom AFB, will host its biannual test workshop on October 20.

The upcoming virtual event focuses on automated testing, software development testing for DevSecOps, and cybersecurity.

According to Capt. Samuel Howard, Test Engineer, 96 CTG Detachment 1, the goal of the workshop is to provide a comprehensive awareness of services and capabilities to meet Hanscom’s programmatic needs.

“The topics and themes we highlight are largely based on Department of Defense trends and customer requests from post-workshop surveys,” he said. “After the event, members in attendance will know that there is testing support at all levels and phases of their mission sets. We are committed to evolving the testing community for customer needs.

Members of the 45th, 46th, and 47th Test Squadrons will present on software testing capabilities, functional software testing automation, software cybersecurity, mission planning, and software testing.

“These workshops not only convey the current testing and cybersecurity capabilities, tools, and resources available, but they also promote cross-functional, real-time discussions between the test and acquisition communities,” Howard said. “Ultimately, our goal is to help streamline connections to the right testing entities and help program staff get the support they need.”

All participants must RSVP to participate. Slots are only available to military and Department of Defense civilian employees and contractors.

The event is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. and end at 5 p.m.
