AFOTEC Rapid Test Support

The Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center (AFOTEC) is responsible for the operational test and evaluation (OT&E) of the AF and other designated weapon systems. Detachment 1 provides test planning, execution, and reporting support for non-traditional assessment (NTA) and traditional OT&E programs. NTA programs also include advanced concept technology demonstrations (ACTDs) and AF Battlelab Initiatives.

J&T is a principal subcontractor to Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) on the RTS Contract. J&T is involved in the preparation of test documentation in support of NTA and OT&E programs, including test plans, execution documents, test reports, emerging results briefings, data management and analysis plans, and test readiness review briefings.

J&T provides general programmatic support to AFOTEC Test Directors (TD), including meeting preparation and minutes, budget and manpower forecasts, preparation of AFOTEC-specific documents (e.g., involvement order, tasking order, test resource plan [TRP], the necessary conditions chart and evaluation framework [NCC/EF], operational test program management [OTPM] network), and staff coordination with HQ AFOTEC core team and outside agencies.

J&T has investigated mission areas and prepared test concepts for numerous OT&E chemical-biological defense (CBD) programs and NTA programs covering a variety of technologies (e.g., command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance [C4ISR], unmanned aerial vehicles). J&T has conducted OT&E and NTA test events, with accompanying test planning documents, in-field execution and support, and test reports. J&T has also led development of test and evaluation master plan inputs and coordination with HQ AFOTEC core team members and other operational test agency (OTA) staffs. Programs with J&T involvement include:

  • Adaptive Joint Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Node (AJCN).
  • Homeland Security (HLS)
  • Network Centric Collaborative Targeting (NCCT)
  • Advanced Tactical Targeting Technology (AT3)
  • Wireless Immediate Communications for an Entire Base (WICEB)
  • Advanced Technology Ordnance Surveillance (ATOS)
  • Pneumatic Assisted Release (PAR)
  • Cipher and Telephony (Ciphony)
  • Loitering Electronic Warfare Killer (LEWK)
  • Joint Service Aircrew Mask
  • Joint Service Personnel Decontamination System (JSPDS).
  • Joint Service Transportable Decontamination System (JSTDS)
