Paper Abstract

Standardization of intermediate test support equipment has been successful in reducing overall support cost by minimizing manpower and eliminating redundant capabilities. This paper addresses future improvements that further support the goal of reducing life cycle cost. Future test needs are presented based on emerging technologies in electro-optics which provide linger range target detection and identification. Meeting these test needs is critical in maintaining the greater levels of capability for the future.
