Abstract
IDT"s existing Automated Test and Re-Test (ATRT) software tool suite is a disruptive technology used to apply automation to the integration and test of large complex defense systems. ATRT is designed to support requirements analysis, performance analysis, Certification and at-sea operational testing. The ATRT tool suite has two major components: Test Manager and Analysis Manager. The Test Manager automates test execution, and the Analysis Manager automates test data analysis. ATRT development is driven by a SysML Model Based System Design approach which, through our established modeling methodology and Rhapsody tool suite, allows for rapid development of system Test Flows (series of steps to execute a test) and Analysis Use Cases (system behaviors mapped to requirements). ATRT has demonstrated the ability to significantly reduce test execution and analysis cost and timelines while improving the quality of system testing through repeatability, advanced data mining, increased requirements coverage, and increased depth of analysis. The use of ATRT has demonstrated test efficiency improvements of greater than 70%. The primary objective of IDT"s ATA Phase II proposed effort is to extend proven Aegis BMD ATRT technology and demonstrated test efficiency improvements to other BMDS element and Multi-Element Integration and Test (MEIT) interoperability testing.
