Army Evaluation Center

Definition/Scope: (ARMY.MIL) EAC was established in 1996, when the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, based on recommendations from the Army Science Board Study and the Headquarters Department of the Army Redesign Functional Area Analysis, consolidated the Army Materiel Command’s (AMC) missions, functions, responsibilities, and resources for independent developmental evaluations, assessments and associated analysis under OPTEC. The consolidation, which formally took place on 1 October 1996, affected personnel within three AMC organizations - the Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity (AMSAA), the Survivability and Lethality Analysis Directorate (SLAD) of the Army Research Lab, and U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (TECOM). AEC’s mission, in partnership with ATEC Test Centers and OTC is to plan and conduct independent, integrated evaluations to determine and report the effectiveness, suitability and survivability of Army systems.
