Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation

TBE has a long history of performing research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E).  We perform research and development in technologies associated with hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) systems, HWIL T&E frameworks, modeling and simulation (at the engineering through high-performance force levels), software systems/applications (development through IV&V), user computer-system interfaces or graphical user interfaces (GUIs), and cyber.  We have supported RDT&E for U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, Joint Services, MDA, and NASA systems.

Systems tested include:

  • Missile and Missile Defense Systems
  • Radars
  • Vehicle Systems
  • Command and Control (C2) Systems
  • Command, Control, Communications Computer, and Combat Systems, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Systems
  • Information Systems
  • Training Systems
  • Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

We are currently involved in:

Cyber RDT&E supported by our internal Cyber Laboratory
C5ISR RDT&E supported by our C5ISR Laboratory and efforts associated with the Objective Simulation Framework (OSF) and other programs
Sensor systems RDT&E through our application of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and radar technologies to provide visual aid to pilots and other platform operators in degraded visual environments
Precision-guided munitions RDT&E in our efforts associated with developing guided 50-caliber and other munitions.
