An effort to overcome the challenges involved in developing complete performance ontologies and test methodologies for evaluating the performance of autonomous systems.

There are many challenges in developing complete performance ontologies and test methodologies to define and evaluate the performance of autonomous systems. Chief among them is the dynamic environment in which the autonomous system is expected to operate. Change in the autonomous system's environment is expected to affect system performance. Test methodologies have to include all aspects of this dynamic environment.

Automation and autonomy offer significant military value in reducing danger to warfighters, in increasing the speed and accuracy of time-critical operations, and in reducing the supervisory burden of warfighters and control systems.
