AbstractThe integrated Network-Enhanced Telemetry (iNET) study is a unique effort that will, for the first time in fifty years, redefine the basic test and evaluation telemetry infrastructure used at every DoD major range and test facility base (MRTFB). Sponsored by OSD/DOT&E, the iNET study is a single-year effort in progress dedicated to identifying end-user needs, developing an experimental network-enhanced architecture, documenting technology gaps, and reporting on the overall feasibility of implementing and deploying telemetry network(s) at the MRTFBs. Using organizational approaches similar to that used to manage the Internet, the vision is to establish and iterate an experimental architecture toward mature and stable standards that accommodate the needs of the broadest possible user base. The Integrated Network Enhanced Telemetry (iNET) study will produce a needs discernment document, telemetry network architecture document, technology shortfalls document, and feasibility report that addresses the ability of a telemetry network system to enhance current pointto- point telemetry systems to meet the future needs of the Major Range Test Facility Base (MRTFB). The conclusions of the feasibility report will be backed up with an extensive analysis of the future needs of the MRTFBs, a draft telemetry network architecture that meets these needs, and analysis of the technical challenges of implementing the system. The scope of this study include s the on-vehicle data acquisition network, the RF network, and the interface to the data management and archival system. This forum will present an overview of the study efforts and viewpoints to date, followed by an interactive panel discussion.
