TReX: System of Systems Controlled Environment Test Infrastructure (SCETI)
The U.S. Army is interested in improving its test capability for sensors used in degraded visual environments (DVE) conditions, including dust and heavy rain. Current Government test capabilities allow for testing in live-flight (manned rotary winged tests), which provides realistic flight mechanics but has significant costs and risks, or in a laboratory setting, which is low cost but does not provide realistic mechanics. In order to improve this test capability, the U.S. Army is interested in prototyping a system that will place sensor assemblies into low cost emulated flight through artificial repeatable rain and dust DVEs characterized by instrumentation in order to directly enhance the readiness and capability of Army aviation platforms.
TreX: Persistent Cyber Training Environment (PCTE) Cyber Innovation Challenge(s)
PCTE is a training platform that allows cyber mission forces to train in emulated network environments utilizing current cyber tool suites. The PCTE supports both individual and team training, in addition to large-scale exercise and experimentation via a distributed close network across multiple classifications. The evolution of the platform will largely focus on integration of available applications, enabling increased automation to ultimately support multiple simultaneous training events. At maturity, the DoD joint PCTE will be a constellation of federated, interoperable common training capabilities enabling full spectrum training from individual competencies to the team, unit, group and force training exercises, TTP development, and mission rehearsal.
TreX: Joint Standard Instrumentation Suite Missile Attitude Subsystem (JMAS)
The Department of Defense (DOD) has a requirement to measure and collect signature, Time-Space-Position Information (TSPI) and related data in support of aircraft survivability equipment / self-protection systems, in addition to other test missions. This project seeks to improve DOD test capabilities by developing a prototype that addresses the capabilities captured in the attachment [TO BE RELEASED FEBRUARY 2018 WITH THE REQUEST FOR SOLUTIONS] with a relatively small footprint, thus, reducing logistics and facilitating rapid deployment of this system to both Continental United States (CONUS) and Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS) test sites.
