Team 6: System of Systems Test Planning in a Joint Mission Environment
MetadataShow full item record
The concept of system-level testing of defense acquisition programs has changed. While system level testing remains necessary, it is no longer sufficient for making meaningful acquisition decisions. DoD planning guidance directs that test and evaluation activities include tests in joint environments. This will require acquisition program managers to conduct testing in environments where their new system is a participant in an overarching, joint system of systems. Such a test environment may include live assets along with virtual and constructive simulations. One can immediately recognize the difficulties of such testing. Planning and designing system of system tests is complex due to the need to replicate an entire mission environment, and the number of potential factors that could affect results or outcomes. Agent based simulation and Data Farming are methods that can help testers determine which factors significantly affect mission outcomes and which do not. This, in turn, allows testers to focus scarce resources on the most important test conditions.
