They will also be expected to provide technical advice and strategic views on the approach and progress to project management, customers and stakeholders.

The specific tasks as part of the T&E Data work package are outlined below:

1) Data Analysis: In order to establish the future data analysis capability requirements for T&E, it will be necessary to investigate the typical needs, benefits and issues related to using enhanced analytical techniques for T&E data. To understand these elements there is a requirement to develop an Automated Data Analysis Technical Demonstrator to demonstrate the benefits Automated Data Analysis can bring to the T&E Enterprise, whilst simultaneously learning from the development process, understanding any barriers to future progress and identifying the key dependencies and enablers needed to realise the To-Be' state of T&E. It is acknowledged that currently data analysis in T&E can be inefficient and rely on manual processes, with poor use and re-use of data, therefore benefits may include more efficient analysis but also more effective analysis, doing more with the data collected and gaining richer insight. In the initial scoping phase of the project will focus on the processing of Radar Cross Section data, investigating how the automation of Data Processing and Analysis in this area could be improved.

2) Data Repository: In order to establish the future data storage capability for T&E including how the data is tagged for retrieval purposes, identify options (based on best practice from industry) for being able to deliver the future data storage requirements

3) Data Networks: To investigate the data connectivity requirements for Test and Evaluation. This is to provide a clear understanding of the requirements for T&E connectivity and networking between T&E sites, storage and enhanced analysis. This investigation should consider the different needs for connectivity, raw data, process data, information and live signal federation. As part of 'connectivity' requirement review, capture information on the types, format and tagging of the T&E data.
