      Joint Advanced Missile Instrumentation (JAMI), a Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program (CTEIP) initiative, is developing advanced telemetry system components that can be used in an integrated instrumentation package for tri-service small missile test and training applications. JAMI has made significant progress in the development of Global Positioning System (GPS) based Time-Space- Position Information (TSPI) tracking hardware, flight termination equipment and end-game vector scoring technology in low cost, modular packages that will allow world-wide test and training. The JAMI program is in full-scale development of advanced GPS technologies to reduce the cold start Time- To-First-Fix (TTFF) to less than 3 seconds. This paper discusses the progress of the program during the past year and the efforts planned for fiscal year 2001. Testing results of GPS receivers to levels of over 50 Gs and problems encountered in programming GPS simulator for missile flight profiles are discussed.
