1 Test & Evaluation Master Plan (TEMP) Overview
Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Charleston Advanced Technology Branch

2 TEMP Focus Addresses the impact of requiring the use of contactless biometric card readers Verify identity Verify card authenticity and validity Establish a plan for an Integrated Test and Evaluation Program (ITEP) for the card reader Testing will support the Coast Guard’s second rule making for readers Temp is a living document which is updated as plans mature or specific information is obtained The TEMP is broken into sections Introduction Program Summary ITEP Plan ITEP Resource Summary

3 TEMP Introduction Background on the TWIC program
Presents the 4 phases of the TWIC program Emphasis on phases 3 (Prototype) & 4 (Implementation) Provides card reader operational performance requirements and critical technical parameters Planned test regions and facilities Type Business conducted Employee count

4 TEMP Program Summary Provides ITEP integrated schedule and organization Schedule of critical events within the major testing activities Organizational chart maps out the organizational entity relationships and documents each of their functions within the ITEP

5 ITEP Overview ITEP has three major activities
Initial Technical Test (ITT) Early Operational Assessment (EOA) System Test and Evaluation (ST&E) Three activities build upon each other to minimize redundancy ITEP is predicated on this principle to decrease the amount of test duplication Independent Test Agent (ITA) Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Charleston has been tasked by DHS to perform the ITA tasking for the ITEP

6 ITT Overview Provides information regarding the technical capability of the card readers Ensures the card reader will work for the EOA phase ITT includes the environmental and specification conformance testing Technical Test Plan Incorporate Coast Guard regulations and Port requirements Reader specifications TEMP guidelines Multiple Test resources will be leveraged NIST laboratory testing NAVAIR environmental testing Vendor laboratory testing – Is there any available test documentation? Independent laboratory testing Collect and Analyze Data Submit Quick Look Report Submit final report

7 ITT Overview Visit 5 geographical locations
Determine specific pilot facilities for EOA Collect data for EOA baseline test plan Define/clarify roles Determine test use cases Identify access points and existing methods Data collection methods and resources Duration and amount of data to collect Develop EOA baseline test plan TSA/DHS approval Submit to ports Disseminate to data collection resources Acquire port acceptance of plan

8 EOA Overview Focuses on collecting early data to support:
2ND Rulemaking Card reader suitability and effectiveness Refinement for card reader specifications Data collection – EOA First stage Testing will be overseen by SPAWAR (Either witnessed or reported daily) Port resources independent of SPAWAR will be utilized Baseline data will be compared to data after new TWIC reader installation Reader Installation Readers are down selected based on ITT test results Port resources install selected TWIC readers (SPAWAR witnesses install) Data collection Data is collected using post installation test procedures in the plan SPAWAR witnesses or data is reported daily SPAWAR quick look report after reader installation Data collection must be instantaneous & reported for quick turn around Analyze post installation data

9 ST&E Overview Evaluates card reader effectiveness, suitability, and supportability All inclusive of previous testing and results Incorporates ITT and EOA lessons learned Establish protocol for other sites/vessels to evaluate readers before the acquisition stage Evaluate full impact of TWIC on facility and vessel operations Port business process Entrant processing Modifications to current Access Control Systems (ACS) Other burdens that face the facility or vessel operators to comply with TWIC Finalize reader regulatory requirements Support future card reader acquisitions Support Coast Guard’s second rule making Card readers will be subjected to normal operations Monitoring will continue under normal operations

10 ITEP Resource Summary Test articles Sites and Instrumentation
Test Support Equipment Simulations and Models T&E administrative support Manpower and training Technical interfaces

11 Port Questions High & low throughput times and access points
Sufficient duration and quantity of data collection Peak Seasons MARSEC levels for each access point Measurement of flow of commerce $ Dollar value Time value Relationship of throughput to dollars

12 SPAWAR Systems Center Charleston
Points of Contact Mr. Richard Baker Branch Head SPAWAR Systems Center Charleston (843) Mr. Richard Kaye Project Manager (843) Mr. Robert McKee Project Engineer (843)
