This chapter defines the standard commands, queries, and status information when communicating with a recorder andor reproducer RR that uses random access storage typically either solid-state or magnetic disk. Not all commands CLI or discrete may be applicable to all types of RR implementations. Commands are used to a control the data flow into and out of, b request the performance of an internal operation within, and c request status information from an RR. The primary intent of this chapter is to cover terminology included in or consistent with the Chapter 10 standard. The CLI and discrete interfaces are divided into two categories of command sets as follows a. Required The minimum set of discrete and CLI commands for RR control, query, and status. b. Optional The optional discrete or CLI command sets that may or may not be implemented and may be shown as references. This chapter standardizes command and control over a variety of different electrical interfaces. These commands can be transmitted via various electrical interfaces ports defined in Section 10.7 of Chapter 10, including Military Standard-1553, RS-232, RS-422, SCSI, Fibre Channel, IEEE 1394 FireWire, internet SCSI iSCSI over networks, and Telnet. When an RR simultaneously supports multiple interfaces, it must comply with the interface and command precedence specified in this chapter. While this standard may serve as a guide in the procurement of ground and airborne recorders, it is not intended to be a substitute for a purchase specification. This standard does not necessarily conform to, nor does it define, existing or planned capabilities of any given test range.
