Abstract: The ALE-47 Software Support Activity (SSA) develops and tests 50 new Mission Data Files (MDFs) each year, with each MDF going through 4 weeks of testing. Currently testing each MDF is a manual process requiring a test engineer spending significant effort to create tests, execute the tests in the ALE-47 Software Test Environment (STE), analyze the data and creating a test report. CTSiƒ?Ts proposed software suite will complement the STE by parsing a new MDF, applying Design Of Experiments (DOE) to generate test cases and scripts to automatically execute these test cases in the STE. Additional upgrades to the software suite will add automatic data collection and test report creation functionality, with an objective of reducing the amount of time an engineer spends performing the test planning, execution, and analysis phases by 50%.
Benefits: The AN/ALE-47(V) Mission Data File (MDF) Software Test Environment (STE) Test Scenario Generator software will greatly reduce the engineering effort required to test new MDF loads by automating scenario generation, test execution, and data collection and reporting. The core Design of Experiments (DOE) methodology used to derive the needed test cases to adequately cover the test space can be applied to other testing needs within the DOD and commercial engineering communities. The software suiteƒ?Ts open architecture allows for the core DOE capabilities to be reused and quickly adapted to accept new forms of inputs and outputs.
