Abstract : This report summarizes the development of the ECI to support DESERT HAMMER VI data collection. Software and hardware aspects of the ECI, OC training and support, and ECI data manipulation are addressed. Also included are problems and advantages within the system and processes. The Electronic Collection Instrument (ECI) had previously been used during an NTC Rotation from 7-21 August 1993. During this field trial, the ECI was used by OCs to collect checklist, statistical, and Take Home Package data. The NTC leadership, impressed with the OCs ability to collect data with the ECI, selected the system as the vehicle for DESERT HAMMER VI electronic data collection. The ECI was a research and development program sponsored by the Defense Institute for Training Resource Analysis (DITRA). The ECI originated from research designed to develop and test a prototype Performance Automated Measurement System (PAMS). PAMS was adopted by the U.S. Army in April 1993 and was subsequently renamed the Electronic Collection Instrument (ECI) for Army use.
