IEDs continue to harass, maim, and kill innocent men, women, and children, as well as numerous coalition and U.S. forces. Currently, over 50% of U.S. casualties are caused by IEDs. To combat this terror, the U.S. government has employed significant resources across a diverse range of dedicated researchers and testers. However, in working so diligently to test the separate components of an IED defeat system, opportunities are missed to effectively utilize the information available across the test enterprise and in the theater of operations. The analyses conducted by Lieutenant Robert Gill and Major Rick LaViolette revealed potential areas of improvement in the business processes at the JIEDDO Test Board (JTB). The focus of this thesis is to use the results produced by the research conducted by Gill and LaViolette to develop requirements to build a set of collaboration tools and associated processes that will support the needs of the end users in theater. The objective of this analysis is to identify requirements that will support the development of web-based tools and describe how the tools will provide input to enhance the JIEDDO test process system.
