Abstract
Successful V&V of complex systems relies on a representative test environment, test data, and Subject Matter Expert (SME) manpower to investigate tough cognitive issues encountered during integration. Because many systems have interface and interoperability requirements with other systems and subsystems, SIM/STIM tools are essential for ensuring incremental combat system developments are functioning correctly. But wherever there is a lack of access to resources across test communities, SME manpower is inefficiently expended planning and significant lag in the development cycle occurs. This proposal addresses limitations by providing an Automated V&V framework for Distributed Testing (ADT) which also supports the necessary SIM/STIM to conduct testing in a variety of configurations. Our novel approach will increase SIM/STIM capability while providing an automated tool suite that leverages a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach. A detailed model of SQQ-89 and AEGIS enables efficient cross-organizational technical reviews and provides approval and acceptance for true Objective Quality Evidence (OQE) used for platform Certification. Our solution leverages proven products within IDT’s Automated Test and Re-Test (ATRT) software suite. By leveraging these core technologies we can provide the necessary infrastructure needed to achieve the Navy’s automated V&V goals for distributed testing while reducing development costs.
