A test article is a version of space craft or related vehicle or equipement, built as a platform to perform testing. Test articles are built to the same specifications to replicate conditions and behaviors of flight ready versions. Test article version are also built without the certification and quality control steps taken with the versions intended for flight. Test articles are more complete than a boilerplate.
