Abstract

Transformative Apps (TransApps) is a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) funded program whosegoal is to develop a range of militarily-relevant software applications (“apps”) to enhance the operational-effectivenessof military personnel on (and off) the battlefield. TransApps is also developing a military apps marketplace to facilitaterapid development and dissemination of applications to address user needs by connecting engaged communities of enduserswith development groups. The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) role in the TransAppsprogram is to design and implement evaluation procedures to assess the performance of: 1) the various softwareapplications, 2) software-hardware interactions, and 3) the supporting online application marketplace. Specifically, NISTis responsible for evaluating 50+ tactically-relevant applications operating on numerous Android™-powered platforms.NIST efforts include functional regression testing and quantitative performance testing. This paper discusses theevaluation methodologies employed to assess the performance of three key program elements: 1) handheld-basedapplications and their integration with various hardware platforms, 2) client-based applications and 3) networktechnologies operating on both the handheld and client systems along with their integration into the applicationmarketplace. Handheld-based applications are assessed using a combination of utility and usability-based checklists andquantitative performance tests. Client-based applications are assessed to replicate current overseas disconnected (i.e. nonetwork connectivity between handhelds) operations and to assess connected operations envisioned for later use. Finally,networked applications are assessed on handhelds to establish baselines of performance for when connectivity will becommon usage.
