Test & Evaluation

Penta Research has extensive experience developing the flight and ground test matrices and scenarios for Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) elements. Penta's methodology utilizes a functional approach for determining test requirements, and an optimization technique for obtaining the maximum data possible from the test matrix. The techniques developed by Penta have been endorsed by the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC) and Director, Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E).
