Abstract:

Initial guidelines for minimum requirements for system representations need to include standardized, disciplined, system engineering methods and processes. The Capability Test Methodology CTM2 describes methods and processes for development of a Joint Operational Context for Test JOC-T based upon authoritative sources and leveraging Department of Defense DOD Architecture Framework DODAF artifacts. These artifacts evolve through a systems engineering process that represents systems in logical and physical designs. Regardless of the specific composition of the design or the collection of required artifacts, system engineering principles, methods and processes are vitally important. The JOC-T needs to have sufficient detail to enable a comparison with the developed live, virtual, constructive distributed environment LVC-DE to satisfy user validation. System representations should be compatible with existing or future infrastructure and should maintain a consistent interface throughout the development cycle. Candidate systems representation requirements will include adequate documentation covering interoperability, compatibility, security based upon DOD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process DIACAP and Verification, Validation and Accreditation VVA. The JOC-T is validated by comparison to the referent authoritative sources e.g., Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System JCIDS, Joint Operations Concept JOpsC family, Analytic Agenda, concept of operations CONOPS documents, joint capability areas JCA, Universal Joint Task Lists UJTL, etc.. The fidelity of the eventual LVC-DE should be correlated to the evaluation strategy so as to tailor system representations to meet test and user validation requirements.
