T&E is the process by which a system or components are compared against requirements and specifications through testing. The results are evaluated to assess progress of design, performance, supportability, etc. Developmental test and evaluation is an engineering tool used to reduce risk throughout the defense acquisition cycle. Operational test and evaluation is the actual or simulated employment, by typical users, of a system under realistic operational conditions.

Project Detail

The FCS Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS) program was divided into two major subgroups of sensing systems: Tactical-UGS (T-UGS), which included Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR)-UGS and Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN)-UGS; and Urban-UGS (U-UGS), also known as Urban Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) Advanced Sensor System.
