Abstract:

A data matrix approach was used to structure the currently undefined population of environmentally related materiel system design and testing issues. The basic matrix is defined by 4 Environmental Regions, 40 Capability Categories CATPLAN, 10 Issue Areas, and 40 Environmental Factors. Each of the resulting 64,000 cells of the matrix has the potential to contain at least one issue. Information on issues and implications for system design are included in cell data design. The benefit of this guide extends beyond tropic testers to include designers, testers, and evaluators for all military systems in all environments. The concept is now being implemented for DOD-wide use by the US Army Engineer Topographic Laboratories.
