This paper will discuss the four major forces presently shaping automatic testing at the remaining Department of Defense Depots. It will explain the history of how automated testing has evolved and the changes that have resulted from the forces of the last 10 years. Additionally it will discuss what challenges and opportunities are ahead for the many Test Program Development Agencies and Automated Test Equipment (ATE) designers. These forces are the result of government down sizing, weapon system life cycle extensions, introduction of Commercial Off The Shelf and the infamous 50-50 legislation. As a result many tough challenges and consequently opportunities lie ahead for the ATE community
