Abstract:
A demonstration of near real-time performance assessment for the Program Executive Officer for Cruise Missiles Project and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Cruise Test Directorate, PEO(CU)-CT, was conducted between 22 March 1994 through 4 May 1994. The demonstration involved the temporary installation of a portable TOMAHAWK telemetry recording and telecommunications capability at the Air Force Development Test Center range at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida and a receiving telecommunications capability at the Naval Warfare Assessment Division (NWAD), Corona, California. The system was successfully used on 4 May 1994 to record TOMAHAWK missile telemetry data in real-time in support of Operational Test Launch (OTL)-163 and to transfer that data to the weapons system performance analysts at NWAD in near real-time. The one hour and three minutes of flight data was compressed in real-time as it was recorded, then, after completion of the flight, the data was transferred to NWAD in about 12 minutes using the switched 56 kbps network. Additional transfers using the Defense Commercial Telecommunications Network (DCTN) were also conducted. All transfers were secured using ethernet encryptors. The data was processed by both the NWAD telemetry ground station and the TOMAHAWK workstation complex. This paper quantifies the results and documents the lessons learned from this demonstration and proposes a standardized system design for possible implementation at TOMAHAWK test range sites in the future. A position is taken that for situations where the remote site (e.g. other range or data analysis site) does not exercise direct operational control over the test/host range, near real-time data relay solutions are not only as adequate, but in many cases are preferable to real-time solutions.
