The mission of the Threat Systems Management Office (TSMO) is to manage the Army Threat System Programs to include the total life cycle of threat systems for testing and training in the live, virtual, and constructive environments. TSMO designs, builds and tests representations of operational and emerging hostile systems with virtually identical performance capabilities that match the identified threat. TSMO ensures all threat systems are continually developed, upgraded, and/or modified and tested to reflect the current threat weapons systems platforms with state-of-the-art technology to support new and emerging DOD weapon systems. Additionally, TSMO conducts threat assessment and analysis in conjunction with the Army, Navy and other joint services operations.


TSMO utilizes a combination of simulators and simulation models, foreign material acquisition, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTs), and new development efforts to achieve its goal of providing threat relevant Electronic Warfare (EW), Information Operations (IO), integrated air defense (IADs), and command and control (C2) capabilities to support Operational Test and Evaluation (OT&E) events. These OT&Es include Network Integration Evaluations (NIEs), Combatant Commander events, as well as other testing and training events. TSMO requires a range of activities associated with conceptualizing, developing, and supporting the execution of testing events. Support is required to allow for more realistic threat representation testing for both hardware and/or software, and to upgrade threat systems and sub-systems with modern techniques that will offer superior threat representation testing against foreign threats. The TSMO requires the design of threat representations in order to reproduce live, virtual, and constructive threat simulations that satisfy the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC) to support future test and training events.
