The Copperhead stockpile surveillance program presently being developed by the Advanced Technologies Laboratory, ARDEC, is a highly automated software driven test system. It is designed to test the Copperhead rounds seeker, electronics package, guidance, and control systems. The data obtained will be used to identify trends in round performance and subsequently provide a means of predicting future round reliability. This report describes the software and related hardware used to acquire test data for the Copperhead stockpile surveillance program. It outlines their interaction and provides an example of how the test system is used. Methods for system calibration are also presented as well as a scheme for sampling data in bursts. Selected portions of in-house developed software are also discussed.
