This OTA is being sought on behalf of the Army’s Redstone Test Center (RTC). RTC’s mission, a subordinate organization to the United States Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC), is to conduct developmental testing, independent evaluations, assessments, and experiments of US Army aviation, missiles, and sensor equipment. This includes, but is not limited to, aircraft/ground vehicle survivability systems; aircraft/aircraft subsystems/aviation mission equipment; unmanned aircraft systems/autonomous systems; targeting/ISR sensors; missile performance and lethality; electromagnetic/environmental effects; and other emerging and enabling technologies and capabilities the Army may require/acquire to support Warfighter needs in the Joint All Domain Operations environment [previously referred to as Multi-Domain Operations (MDO)]. RTC is tasked to provide the Warfighter test and evaluation (T&E) capabilities that include, but are not limited to, the assessment of the operational feasibility and utility of developmental testing, training, and readiness prototypes that fall within USAFC’s six priority areas that result in the provision of actionable test information and data to USAFC decision makers in a timely and cost effective manner. However, as technology continues to accelerate, adversarial threats continue to evolve, and USAFC’s need to gain actionable test data and information to drive critical acquisition decisions continues to grow, RTC must change how it tests and assesses developmental testing, training, and readiness prototypes if it is to meet the growing and demanding technological and operational needs of today’s (and tomorrow’s) Warfighter.

The goal of the EVCAPP is to enable RTC to go from test planning to test report with unprecedented speed and agility resulting in significant enterprise wide increases to the quality of test and assessment information and data presented to key decision makers. To meet this goal, EVCAPP seeks to improve RTC’s test and assessment methodologies and capabilities by demonstrating more agile, adaptable, and resilient test and assessment technologies, methodologies, processes, and capabilities that reduce test and reporting timelines and increase the availability of decision quality information and data to Army decision makers. This will include the novel application of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies for defense purposes. Furthermore, EVCAPP seeks to demonstrate an integrated, agile, adaptable, resilient, holistic, and cost-effective test and assessment capability to support USAFC and RCCTO mission and vision to deliver Warfighter technologies and capabilities in a timely, reliable, and cost-effective manner. This OTA will focus in 5 key areas:

  • Data Collection, Processing, Analysis, and
  • Expeditionary Test Support Capability
  • Test Execution Command and Control (C2).
  • Instrumentation and Simulation
  • Modular Open System Approach (MOSA) Test

Join us on October 20 for Experimental Validation Capabilities Prototype Project (EVCAPP) Project TALX. This webinar will facilitate an active dialogue between the Army’s Redstone Test Center (RTC) and potential performers prior to solution deadlines. Participants will hear about the end user’s current experience, as well as the desired outcome of the prototype, directly from the source.
