Paper Abstract

Testing issues arising from producibility concerns have prompted the US Army Strategic Defense Command to rethink its traditional dependance on complete capability seeker/sensor test chambers. The entire testing spectrum is being reevaluated. Component or subsystem tests joined together by computer simulation to produce end item performance predictions can be used to increase throughput to expected production rates. This paper discusses these and other testing issues, their applicability to phased development of a seeker/sensor system, and concentrates on ideas for solutions to the production rate problems.
