Operational test is an effective way to promote development of equipment system. Based on an analysis of network integration evaluations (NIEs) and joint warfighting assessment (JWAs) of US military, suggestions for equipment operational test in our military are proposed. Firstly, present evolution of NIEs and JWAs of US military, including the importance and role of NIEs, implementation process of NIEs and related information about 16 exercises, is summarized. Secondly, a series of operational test characteristics of NIEs, such as specific requirements from actual combat, realistic combat scenario, integrated mode of test and training, direct generation of combat effectiveness, civil and military integrated development of combat effectiveness, is analyzed. Finally, enlightenments brought by these exercises, which can be applied to our troops’ equipment operational test, such as developing operational test from the needs of actual combat ability, strengthening interoperability evaluation of equipment systems, exploring a test and training integrated operational test mode, organizing a special operational test unit and encouraging industrial sector to participate in operational test, are proposed.
