Abstract : The CALS Test Network (CTN) was created to thoroughly test, evaluate, and demonstrate the CALS Standards. It was set up under the direction of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (OASD), is managed by the CALS Test Network Office (CTNO) at the Air Force Logistics Command (AFLC), with an operational laboratory at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The overarching goal of the CTNO is to test, evaluate, and demonstrate the interchange and functional use of digital technical information between industry and government using CALS Standards. A part of this goal is to test, at the corporate Department of Defense (DoD) level, the usability of the CALS standards in the DoD infrastructure, and eliminate duplicate testing by the DoD components. The CTNO objectives are: (1) Develop a CALS Test Network for user application testing of CALS Standards under actual use conditions; (2) Operate the CTN and interchange digital technical data; and (3) Implement a CTN Review Board (CTNRB) of government members.
