- A Live Demonstration is conducted in real-time in a synthetic environment consisting of hardware, software, and humans under simulated scenarios for the purpose of demonstrating that a complex system possesses a set of quality characteristics.
- Example: Coalition Warrior Interoperability Demonstration (CWID)
- CWID is conducted annually for the purpose of evaluating technologies and capabilities for the interoperability quality characteristic under a set of prescribed simulated scenarios.
- CWID evaluates technologies and capabilities for exchanging information among coalition partners, military services, government agencies, first responders, and U.S. combatant commanders under simulated scenarios using role players.
