Santa Barbara Infrared, Inc. has deployed IRWindows as an Electro-Optical test development and execution environment for military Test Program Sets (TPS). Advantages of TPS development for EO systems in the IRWindows environment are seen compared to the TPS development in ATLAS. The advantages of the IRWindows environment are: 1. Faster learning curve (graphical user interface is easier than test line interface) 2. Faster TPS development time (real time changes and asset control interface allows for faster development) 3. Asset control panel allows user to control assets real time and monitor all asset functions during development 4. Unit Under Test (UUT) image viewer allows user to set test parameters like Region of Interest more easily and more precisely 5. Continuous mode tests (like MTF allows user to real time adjustments) 6. Open architecture for test modifications This paper will outline the details of how these advantages are utilized and how not only development time is decreased but also how test execution time can be minimized making traditionally long TPS run times on EO systems more efficient.
