Abstract : This CALS Test Network MIL-D-28003 (CGM) Test Packet, together with the floppy disk described in Attachment A, contains information useful in conducting tests of the military specification MIL.D- 28003 using CGM interpreters. The use of this material helps evaluate and demonstrate industry's and government's use of MIL-D-28003 in accordance with the CALS initiative. The CALS Test Network (CTN), the organization tasked with testing and demonstrating the CALS digital data interchange standards among industry and government, will use this packet in the tests that it conducts. The results derived from this testing will allow the CTN to suggest modifications to vendors' CGM software, the ANSI/ISO standard for CGM, and most importantly, the MIL D-280()3 military specification. However, the greatest use of this test packet is expected to be by industry and Service components as they test and evaluate their own CALS CGM capabilities independently of the CTN.
