      TENA and JMETC enable interoperability among Telemetry Instrumentaion (TM) ranges, facilities, and simulations in a timely and cost-efficient manner. TENA provides for real-time system interoperability, as well as interfacing existing range assets, C4ISR systems, and simulations; fostering reuse of range assets and future software systems. JMETC is a distributed, LVC capability which uses a hybrid network architecture; the JSN is used for secret testing and the JMN is the network solution for all classifications and cyber testing. JMETC provides readily available connectivity to the Services' distributed test and training capabilities and simulations, as well as industry resources. TENA and JMETC allow for the most efficient use of current and future TM range resources via range resource integration and remote control. This integration fosters interoperability and reuse within the test and training communities, critical to validate system performance in a highly cost-effective manner.
