Abstract : The purpose of the informal test, reported in this QSTR, was to analyze Xerox Corporation's interpretation and use of the CALS Standards in transferring technical publications data. Xerox used its CALS Technical Data Interchange System to produce data, in accordance with the standards, and delivered it to the CTN technical staff on a 9-track magnetic tape. The Department of Defense (DoD) Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistics Support (CALS) Test Network (CTN) is conducting tests of the military standard for the Automated Interchange of Technical Information, MIL-STD-1840A, and its companion suite of military specifications. The CTN is a DoD sponsored confederation of voluntary participants from industry and government managed by the Electronic Systems Center (ESC). The primary objective of the CTN is to evaluate the effectiveness of the CALS standards for technical data interchange and to demonstrate the technical capabilities and operational suitability of those standards. Two general categories of tests are performed to evaluate the standards; formal and informal.
