Abstract
As the scale, cost, and complexity of Army systems performance tests continue to increase, the need for a streamlined data reduction process becomes critical to making definitive and timely acquisition decisions. Major evaluation efforts produce massive data sets related to system or system-of-systems field effectiveness and utility to the warfighter. The process of analyzing data to generate test reports for decision-maker review is challenged by the volume of data, the geographic distribution of test facilities, and the existence of disparate data formats. Recent advances in automation technologies, as well as maturing infrastructures such as JMETC, present a tantalizing prospect in terms of their potential to augment the traditional data analysis process, thereby reducing the timeline, required manpower, and cost associated with system performance evaluation. This proposal suggests a study be conducted to identify various existing and tailorable knowledge management architectures, automation technologies, and software tools and to appraise them based on integration feasibility into Army processing paradigms and perceived benefit to the test evaluator. Frontier Technology, Inc. will leverage years of experience in designing data architectures and innovative automation technologies for DoD customers to recommend a viable course of action to improving the Army’s operational test data process.
