Abstract:

The computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support CALS Program is a DoD Industry strategy to transition from paper-intensive acquisition and logistic processes to a highly automated and integrated mode of operation for the weapon systems of the 1990s. These volumes document the accomplishments of the Graphics Software Group of the National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST in support of computer graphics standards for CALS in FY89. They provide a progress report on continuing graphics standards efforts related to the Computer Graphics Metafile CGM standard. These reports are divided into two volumes 1, Test Requirements Document and Extended CGM CGEM and 2, MIL- D-28003 Revisions and CGM Registration. Volume 1. Completion of the first milestone toward the establishment of a comprehensive CGM and MIL-D-28003 Test Method and ultimately a Testing Service, namely the creation of a Test Requirements Document, is detailed. This Test Requirements Document will provide the basis for developing conformance tests to determine compliance both with CGM and MIL-D-28003. Progress to inject CALS requirements into the Extended CGM CGEM is also detailed.
