Paper Abstract

This paper describes an information-centric embedded instrumentation systems architecture (EISA) and in particular its technical reference model (TRM) as they relate to the network-centric Test and Training Enabling Architecture (TENA). The embedded instrumentation systems architecture is meant to describe the operational, behavioral and informational requirements for a general "embedded instrumentation test and evaluation system" encased within an operational weapons system. The weapons system application could be in a weapon round, or in an entire large platform such as a warfare fighting unit, battle group or single war-craft such as a ship, plane or tank. TENA and the EISA models have much in common as will be described. The differences lie in the focus of each model's intended application domain. Both are part of the military support communities for aiding the military in training, testing, evaluating, verification or validation of weapons systems.
