Purpose. The primary purpose of test and evaluation (T&E) is to support system development and acquisition by serving as a feedback mechanism in the iterative systems engineering process. This pamphlet provides guidance and procedures to implement T&E policy for materiel and information systems with regard to planning, executing, and reporting T&E in support of the acquisition process as promulgated by Army Regulation (AR) 73-1. Developing and deploying Army systems that are operationally effective, suitable, and survivable represents a significant challenge to all involved in the systems acquisition process. The procedures and guidelines in this pamphlet apply to-

a. All systems developed, acquired, and managed under the auspices of Department of Defense (DOD) Directive (DODD) 5000.1, DOD Instruction (DODI) 5000.2, and AR 70-1; these systems are referred to as materiel and Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence/Information Technology (C4I/IT); and AR 40-60; these systems are referred to as medical systems.

b. All systems managed and certified for interoperability under the auspices of DODD 4630.5, DODI 4630.8, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction (CJCSI) 6212.01B.

c. All special access programs (SAP) under the auspices of AR 380-381.

d. Materiel developers (MATDEV), combat developers (CBTDEV), functional proponents for non-tactical C4I/IT systems, training developers (TNGDEV), threat analysts, developmental testers, operational testers, system evaluators, HQDA staffers, and all others involved in the T&E of systems during acquisition. The term MATDEV when used in this pamphlet includes program, project, and product managers (PM) and their staffs unless otherwise stated. The term CBTDEV includes functional proponents unless otherwise stated.

Applicability. The provisions of this pamphlet apply to the Active Army, the Army National Guard of the United States, and the U.S. Army Reserve. This pamphlet is not applicable during mobilization.
