The United States Army is undergoing force structure and doctrinal changes to meet the evolving threats facing the nation. To fulfill operational requirements brought about by these changes, Army aviation is developing the RAH-66 Comanche. As a precursor to the Comanche being fielded in operational units, the aircraft must perform to standard during its Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOTE). The Army must fashion the IOTE to ensure the Comanche meets the requirements of the future force. To do this, test scenarios must focus on placing the aircraft in environments and situations in which it will be expected to operate. Test scenarios must be kept technically and tactically sound to provide accurate and realistic information. This thesis identifies scenarios which encapsulate future requirements brought about by the Army's migration to the Objective Force. The scenarios have been developed to test and evaluate operational effectiveness measures of performance. The scenarios reflect the early stages of FCS due to Comanche being the first system tested. As doctrine and the systems that comprise FCS continue to evolve, it is recommended to ensure the scenarios remain updated to reflect the most current information and equipment. Recommendations also include methods to alleviate resource constraints
