As a result of many of the causal factors previously discussed, the competing demands on resources for operational test and initial tactics development, the current fleet demand for systems, and the overall complexity of the new systems, COMOPTEVFOR
cannot do its tasks alone nor put out required initial guidance in the timeline currently desired.
The Stanley team has supported COMOPTEVFOR
for more than 10 years.
Contract Awarded to Provide critical operational test and evaluation analytical support to COMOPTEVFOR
However, my first test is going to be in-lab tests with COMOPTEVFOR
(Commander, Operational Test and Evaluation Force).
Mark Ludovico, Joint Staff J6, explained that with the two ships and more than 40 aircraft flying on any given day of the event, the Navy team stress tested the IFF integrated suite and Aegis ballistic missile defense system Mode 5 in partnership with COMOPTEVFOR
under 13 separate initiatives.
Under the COMOPTEVFOR
contract vehicle, Alion will conduct independent research and provide technical and analytical support for acquisition and fleet introduction decisions of naval aviation, surface, subsurface, and space systems relied on by the fleet.
