Abstract : The purpose of the informal test, reported in this QSTR, was to analyze Northrop Corporation's interpretation and use of the CALS standards in transferring technical publication data. Northrop used its CALS Technical Data Interchange System to produce data, in accordance with the standards, and delivered it to the AFCTN technical staff on two 9-track magnetic tapes. The two tapes contained the same data files. The test was to evaluate the recording speeds of their tape drives. Both tapes were read and the files were compared, to ensure the data was exactly the same, before the evaluation was started.
