Auxilium International is experienced in performing Test and Evaluation (T&E) for many different types of systems. Systems T&S consists of software products, communication systems, ISR systems, and other Intelligence systems.

T&E is the process by which a system or components are compared against requirements and specifications through testing. The results are evaluated to assess progress of design, performance, and supportability. It is absolutely critical that Developmental T&A is used as an engineering tool to reduce risk throughout the product/system life-cycle.


Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) is the actual or simulated employment of a system by the users under realistic operational conditions. System test must assess:

  • Reliability
  • Availability
  • Maintainability
  • Supportability
  • Usability

Key aspects throughout the T&E process.

Performance Evaluation

  • Measures of Effectiveness are specific metrics that are used to measure results in the overall mission and execution of assigned tasks.
  • Measures of Performance are specific metrics that have a pass or fail limit that must be satisfied. These are generally identified with the words shall or must in the specification.
  • Measures of Suitability evaluate the ability to be supported in its intended operational environment. (A system with excessive failures may satisfy all other requirements and not be suitable for use)


Rapid changes in the threats and challenges in today's environment requires agencies to be more agile and responsive.
