dc.description.abstractThis thesis defines a methodology that can be used to support a comprehensive red-teaming process to assess the technology used during developmental technology. The goal is for the U.S. Army to benefit from a repeatable, adaptable method to acquire defense systems that are both useful and desirable by operational commands. A stakeholder analysis focused on red-team requirements indicated the need to increase threat emulation capabilities, provide a quantitative snapshot of technology, and increase collaboration between government and industry. Based on the methodology recommended by this research, a new, repeatable process was initiated by the Adaptive Red Team. This new process offers an improved evaluation of developmental technology, which provides a baseline logistics, technological and user factors score for each technology, and a better understanding of the risk of acceptance for a tested technology. Additional process improvements include emulation of formidable threats through equipment; improved tactics, techniques, and procedures; and increased collaboration between government and industry through the use of data standards, new knowledge of adaptive red-team missions, and technology introductions. Initial results of applying the recommendations of this thesis have uncovered vulnerabilities never seen and when mitigated, have shown to increase operational capabilities for DOD.en_US
