Abstract : This paper documents the results of a sequence of tests conducted to evaluate the DoD Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support (CALS) data interchange capability of the Air Force Engineering Data Computer-Assisted Retrieval System (EDCARS). The CALS initiative specifies a standard digital interface to streamline the interchange of technical data between the DoD and the commercial sector. The CALS Test Network (CTN) is tasked to conduct tests of the military standards wbich speciiy this digital interface. The testing results outlined in this report are intended to evaluate the EDCARS system's ability to support CALS data interchanges and establish the level of technical data interoperability implemented at this DoD engineering data repository.
