Research Institution
IAC proposes to design a portable platform that will implement NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) traceability standards for calibrating shipboard and industrial sensors. This platform will enable a single individual to perform automated closed loop calibration, thereby helping the Navy achieve its goal of reducing crew size requirements for the maintenance of large sensor networks. The use of remote desktop technology and remotely-controlled circuitry will allow a single maintainer to possess the controllability and observability required in order to perform sensor calibration procedures that presently require at least two maintainers. In addition, IAC will develop circuitry that meets the accuracy and stability levels required to maintain NIST traceable calibration standards. The protocols in the proposed concept platform will be based upon open standards and will strive towards compatibility with products from other vendors who may play critical technology roles in the overall solution that the Navy seeks. This circuitry and systems developed in this effort will support Navy documentation process for compliance to NIST traceability.
