Abstract : The Combat Development Experimentation Center has as its over-all objective the testing and evaluation of combat equipments techniques, and evaluation organizational configurations. One of the principal testing methods is field experimentation involving actual troops and vehicles, with simulated fire and weapons effects. Instrumentation for this type of experiment is the subject of this study. A hypothesized system and set of techniques were used as a test case to show what parameters are significant, and to show the relationship of these parameters to actual equipment. Results are discussed.
