Abstract:

A Mobile Instrument Laboratory is described, which was designed, fabricated, and placed into operation by TACOM. The purpose of this facility is to enable efficient measurement of any field data that may be important from the viewpoint of analyzing and evaluating the adequacy of the design of a vehicle or its components. Important performance features in this system include the climination of the need for a wire-connected pacing vehicle and on-board real-time monitoring of data during magnetic tape recording. On-site calibration and repair capability are also provided. This Mobile Laboratory may be taken to almost any location at any time to acquire data on complete vehicle or any of their components for subsequent simulator testing or analysis. Setup time for the measurement equipment is reduced to a minimum through the use of a cable patch system. In addition, the Mobile Laboratory may be connected into the fixed station laboratories to augment their capacity during periods of excessive workloads.
