Abstract : The Department of Defense and-the Services do not have a paucity of standards. On the contrary. there exists a standard or, in most instances, standards, which address virtually anything and everything purchased and utilized by the DoD. A problem appears to be the acceptance and application of these standards by industry operating in our competitive democratic society All too often conflicts develop between the application of established DoD/Service standards and what is perceived to be the good of a given company or the unfair advantage of another. Consequently, systems and equipments do not work together without the expense and inherent operational drawbacks of developing and using black boxes . Furthermore, the pace of technology change sometimes outstrips the pace of standardization, thus rendering standards obsolete or requiring frequent change. Hence there is a need for a re-examination of the process for establishing DoD standards and the application of this process to JTC3A's mission.
