Abstract
Differences in digital test source file formats and tool usage requirements can complicate the manual translation from one format to another. The involved complexities and high count occurrences of needed operations clearly require the use of modernautomated software and computers. One instance of a need for digital test information translation is apparent in the case of LASAR V files. The files were generally developed on VAX or Sun computer based tools and have become obsolete and unusablewithout conversion tools to update them to newer versions of LASAR or preferably the IEEE 1445 standard for digital test interchange format (DTIF). PC based tools would by far be the preferable methodology for doing this translation because the overheardand system management required for the VAX and Sun Sparc systems can add excessive costs to any comparable effort. What is needed is a PC based set of tools for conversion of LASAR V data files and other formats to IEEE-1445 DTIF format and a comparabletranslation from the DTIF to LASAR VI and other formats. The associated proposal discusses an approach for researching, developing, producing, and commercializing such a tool.
