Automated Hardware-Software Testing for Military Ground Vehicles
Our team developed an automated test suite to accelerate software verification testing for the Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) ground vehicle for the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command.
The objective of this project was to provide specified automation of test development and execution to streamline the testing of the vehicle's command and control component technologies. As part of this test automation effort, the team developed, tested, troubleshooted, analyzed, and also prototyped components for demonstration and proof of concept.
Utilizing our automated test hardware, software frameworks, and test scripting expertise, we were able to automate test verification procedures, cutting manual test execution timelines by 80%.
Software Requirements & Test Management for Ground Vehicle Robotics
In support of the Ground Vehicle Systems Center’s (GVSC) Ground Vehicle Robotics (GVR), our team provided requirements and testing expertise for the Software Foundry initiative. Our engineers integrated with cross-functional teams responsible for developing and deploying new processes and procedures to accelerate the development of new and existing robotics programs.
As part of this effort, we developed and delivered planning and process frameworks for the Robotics Technology Kernel (RTK) and the Warfighter Machine Interface (WMI) product lines. These provided development teams with a safety critical agile development process and real-world examples of requirements and testing strategies.
To accomplish this, our team leveraged our aerospace background and expertise in digital engineering to develop plans that specifically align with the objectives of DO-178C. As a result of our engineering support for GVR, we further advanced GVSC’s vision for cross-platform modular software capable of being utilized and re-used across a wide range of unmanned vehicles.
