AbstractThis paper describes the integration effort of ARTM systems into the existing telemetry infrastructure at the Air Force Flight Test Center (AFFTC) at Edwards AFB, California. This paper will also discuss the framework of the ARTM integration effort, which includes defining user requirements, integration approach, management approach, procurement, test and evaluation, and coordination with the ARTM Joint Program Office (JPO). Interoperability with existing equipment and with other ranges will also be discussed. ARTM is a Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program (CTEIP) under the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Undersecretary for Acquisition and Technology whose purpose is to improve the efficiency of spectrum usage. As the ARTM program approaches completion, integration efforts are underway to take advantage of the capabilities developed by the ARTM program. This integration effort brings the Test and Evaluation (T&E) community at Edwards AFB a step closer to realizing solutions to a variety of telemetering challenges including the shrinking frequency spectrum, demand for higher data rates, and the need to maintain the current level of commonality and interoperability between Major Range and Test Facility Bases (MRTFB).
