Abstract : TRW Systems and Energy Group undertook a program to bring the Automatic Test Equipment for Internal Combustion Engines (ATE/ICE) system to a developmental level which would be sufficient to demonstrate the functional capabilities of the system and to allow operational assessment by Army management and vehicle technicians as to the benefits of such a system. The ATE/ICE system had several deficiencies; a data base upon which diagnostic decisions could be made was lacking, the hardware exhibited numerous problems - poor tape control and reading, excessive electronic noise, inconsistencies in the hardware among the six units, inadequate transducers, and interface electronics, and finally there was no self contained diagnostic program.
