Common Test & Evaluation Analyses
Defense systems are complex systems that contain a variety of software and hardware components. They consistently push the limitations of scientific understanding, synergizing new and unique interfaces among software, hardware, and users.
Testing these complex, multi-functional systems, especially when you consider the range of system types that must be tested, demands both a structured and flexible analytical process. Thorough testing of defense systems must ensure that they will work in a variety of complex combat environments and scenarios.
