Paper Abstract

The DoD has determined that standardization of Electro-Optic testing is beneficial to current and future Automated Test Systems (ATS). Adopting standards will reduce cost of ownership of ATS and will improve flexibility through interoperability of ATS. The current state of the art in instrument standardization is the Interchangeable Virtual Instrument (IVI) Foundation standards already adopted for commercial standard test equipment such as Digital Multimeters. The Navy has formed a working group entitled “EO Software Working Group” that is meeting quarterly to come up with appropriate IVI standards for EO testing. Considerable progress has been made over the past two years. The first specification, for Blackbodies, has been produced (draft version). Over the next 18 months this will be finalized and submitted to the IVI Standards Committee for formal approval. In addition, other specifications for EO testing will be developed and submitted for formal incorporation. This paper will describe the needs for standardization in the ATS community and the progress in EO IVI standards.
