• DoD Ranges Interoperability and Resource Reuse Achievable Through the Test and Training Enabling Architecture, TENA

      Hudgins, Gene; TENA Software Development Activity (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2006-10)
      To ensure range interoperability and range resource reuse are available and promoted across the DoD Test and Training range community, the Central Test and Evaluation Investment Program (CTEIP) has developed and continues to refine the Test and Training Enabling Architecture (TENA). TENA provides the architecture and software implementation to enable range interoperability, to foster range asset reuse, to provide composability, and to enable simulation‐based system engineering/acquisition. TENA has proven to be a critical enabler of major distributed live military exercises but has expanded to embrace other usage. Inclusive of new technologies, TENA developers are actively involved with the integrated Network Enhanced Telemetry (iNET), a CTEIP program which will provide wireless connectivity over which a variety of users will run applications and exchange data.
