Driven by a philosophy that test methods should be repeatable, reproducible, and as automated as possible, we have developed an experimentation regime for expeditionary autonomous unmanned vehicles. This regime represents a method of decomposing functionality, building up evidentiary information, and analyzing component results on overall system performance despite the challenge of testing to sufficient statistical significance. We have also developed a set of methods and tools that automate data collection and analysis to facilitate experimentation. This paper describes this test and experimentation philosophy, regime, and associated tools developed under the Office of Naval Research, Code 30 Ground Vehicle Autonomy program.
