Abstract
A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT HAS BEEN SPENT IN RECENT YEARS TO DEVELOP STANDARDIZED METHODOLOGIES FOR ACCEPTING AND VERIFYING EMP HARDENED MILITARY FACILITIES. THE FIRST OF THESE STANDARDIZATION EFFORTS TO BE PUT INTO EFFECT APPLIES TO FIXED SITE, CRITICAL, TIME URGENT C4I FACILITIES. THE REQUIREMENTS EXISTS FOR AN ADVANCED INSTRUMENTATION APPROACH THAT CAN OVERCOME THE DIFFICULT ACQUISITION ENVIRONMENT ASSOCIATED WITH STANDARDIZED EMP TESTING OF FACILITIES AND MILITARY ELECTRONICS SYSTEMS WILL MINIMIZING THE PROBABILITY OF LOST OR INACCURATE DATA. THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THE PHAE I EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP AND DEMONSTRATE AN ENHANCED INSTRUMENTATION ARCHITECTURE THAT OFFERS SIGNIFICANT INCREASES IN PRODUCTIVITY AND DATA QUALITY CONTROL OVER TRANDITIONAL APPROACHES. OUR PROPOSED APPROACH TO MEETING THIS CHALLENGE IS TO INTEGRATE SEVERAL DIVERSE BUT COMPLEMENTARY TECHNOLOGIES INTO AN ADVANCED INSTRUMENTATION SYSTEM. THE TECHNOLOGY NEEDED TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED INSTRUMENT WITH THESE CHARACTERISTICS IS GENERALLY AVAILABLE BUT THE METHODOLOGY FOR DEVELOPING THE INSTRUMENTATION IS NOT FIRMLY ESTABLISHED. THE FIRST PHASE OF THE EFFORT WILL FULLY DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE ADVANCED INSTRUMENTATION AND PROVIDE A DESIGN CONCEPT. THE PHASE I CONCEPT WILL BE DEVELOPED UNDER THE SECOND PHASE FUNDING.
