Test & Evaluation

VNE’s extensive experience in the area of test and evaluation ranges from coordination of test events through execution and reporting. Our team performs functional analyses, technical studies, and assessments for Intelligence systems.

We support Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic (SSCA) and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) in the performance of all levels of tests and evaluations to include:

  • Test Readiness Reviews (TRR)
  • Developmental Test and Evaluation (DT&E)
  • Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E)
  • Full Operational Test and Evaluation (FOT&E)
  • Interoperability Testing
  • Systems Integration Testing (SIT)
  • Field User Evaluation (FUE)
  • Certification and Accreditation (C&A)/Assessment and Authorization (A&A)
  • Operational Evaluation (OPEVAL)/Operational Analysis (OA)

VNE provides:

  • Test and Evaluation (T&E) expertise and coordination of test events through execution and reporting
  • Support to MCSC, SSCA, and ONR in the performance of all levels of T&E to include Development Tests (DT), Operational Tests (OT), Interoperability Testing, Systems Integration Testing (SIT), Field User Evaluation (FUE), and Operational Evaluation (OPEVAL)/Operational Analysis (OA)
  • Preparation of test plans, test procedures, test specifications, test scripts, test data, test reports, and Test and Evaluation Master Plans (TEMP); and coordination of/participation in Test Readiness Reviews (TRR)
  • Development of the test plan, schedule, procedures, scripts, ground truth data, and metrics, working in conjunction with the Government and system developers
  • Support to Operational Exercises, Interoperability Test Events, FUEs and Empire Challenge events responsible for ensuring:
    • Test activity coordination
    • System and facility availability
    • Test team identification
    • Spare part and maintenance requirements are met
    • Satellite and communication link coordination
    • Development of test scripts and data sets that address test criteria
  • Counter Remote Control Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Electronic Warfare (CREW) test support to MCSC Force Protection Systems (FPS)
  • MCSC FPS lead support contractor for RCIED threat assessments and engineering testing
  • Performance of effectiveness testing, interoperability testing, and friendly communications fratricide testing for the Marine Corps CREW program
  • Support to Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Data Transfer (SDT) software testing, as well as other applications on the TCAC platform
  • Participation in Software Installation Verification Testing (SIVT), Functional Verification Testing (FVT), Acceptance Testing (AT), Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V), and Operational Forces Acceptance Testing (OAT) for applications on the TCAC platform
  • Collection, analysis, and reporting of all test results to address all test criteria and metrics, and identification of any “lessons learned” to be applied to the next round of testing
