Abstract:

This document is a Test and Evaluation Plan for an operational test and evaluation of quality control aids QCAs for training and testing of the FAA sponsored K-9 teams. Actual explosives and QCAs will be operationally tested for three types of explosives double-based smokeless powder, TNT, and C4. The three configurations of each QCA include a cloth patch treated with a pure solution, a cloth pouch treated with a granular composite mixture, and a non-hazardous explosive for security training and testing NESTT material. This total of nine QCAs will be evaluated to determine the optimal configuration for the QCAs. The results of the OTE will be used to select leading candidate QCAs for further evaluation under field operational conditions.
