Abstract:

Test and evaluation of system performance has been a critical part of the acceptance of combat weapon systems for the Department of Defense. As combat weapon systems have become more complex evaluation of system performance has relied more heavily on recorded test data. As part of the on-going transformation of the Defense department Commercial-Off- The-Shelf COTS technology is being integrated into the acquisition of combat weapon systems. An Analysis Control Board ACB was created in response to these factors to support the AEGIS Weapon System Program Office. The focus of this ACB was to investigate and provide potential solutions to Data Dictionary Data Recording and Data Reduction R2D2 issues to the AEGIS Program Manager. This thesis discusses the history of the R2D2 ACB and its past present and future directions. Additionally this thesis examines how the R2D2 ACB concept could be applied to the DDX Next Generation Destroyer program.
