Model-Test-Model (MTM) is a process that intends to use high-fidelity/high-resolution combat models to simulate and replicate field operational tests.[1][2][3][4] The MTM Process is divided into 5 phases:

  • Long Term Planning - Identify the responsibility among interested organizations
  • Pretest Modeling - Modeler creates a model of a subject under test
  • Field Test - Modeler performs data gathering of subject under test
  • Post Test Modeling - Subject under test model input parameters are matched with subject under test field test output values
  • Model Validation/Accreditation - Modeler provides sufficient evidence to a tester that a simulation adequately replicates field testing
