AIAA Air Force Developmental T&E Summit AIAA-2004-6875 Woodland Hills, CA. 16-18 Nov 2004 Joint Range Systems Interoperability Achieved Through the Implementation of the Test and Training Enabling Architecture (TENA) Keith Poch, Sverdrup Technology * ; Gene Hudgins and Bobby Mack, BAE ; Jason Lucas, 96th CGp Air Armament Center, Eglin AFB FL 32542 I. TENA Provides Blueprint for Range Interoperability and Resource Reuse The United States Department of Defense (DoD) has invested millions of dollars in test and training ranges. Geographically dispersed from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the Canadian border to the Mexican border including Hawaii, Alaska, and the United States territories, the air, land, and sea ranges are used by the U.S. Military Services and various other agencies with training and equipment needs that must be resolved and validated. As these DoD ranges expanded in mission types and acquired resources, each range tended to develop “vertically,” each building on range-dependent instrumentation systems. This isolated growth defeated the economic and efficiency gains that could be achieved by range resource reuse and range interoperability, concepts that were being forwarded in the late 1990s by the Foundation Initiative 2010 (FI 2010) project, which is sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program (CTEIP). Range interoperability requires the use of a common architecture (including a common language, communication mechanism and context [including the environment and time]) to meaningfully communicate across divergent systems, and range resource reuse requires well-documented system interfaces that ensure commonality.
