You’ll provide T&E of hardware and software development, including developing and documenting test plans and procedures, conducting testing, and evaluating and documenting results. You’ll conduct analysis to enhance T&E activities, including the review, evaluation, and development of recommendations on T&E strategies, T&E Master Plans, critical operational issues, critical technical parameters, concepts of employment, concepts of operations, operational mode summaries, test plans, test reports, test ideas, and test event issues.
