Over the past 20 years, various approaches have been proposed to reduce the cost and duration of testing military systems. At the same time, the systems being tested have become considerably more complex. This study examined system-level testing for selected fixed-wing aircraft programs and related weapons. The authors provide cost estimating methodologies and reference information on various test programs.
