                             VISION
 Versatile Information Systems Integrated On-line
VISION embodies a comprehensive, holistic, top down
  approach to information collection, management, and
  ultimate transformation into knowledge.

Modular Instrumentation Suite –
a family of intelligent instruments
configure as an on-vehicle Local Area
Network
Seamless Communications –
wireless Ethernet based on IEEE-
802.11 standards
Digital Library – knowledge
management web-based system for
information fusion


          VISION employs a web-centric approach that merges and
          exploits instrumentation and information management
          technologies

  Instrumentation Initiative (CVII)
CVII is a cooperative effort between the Aberdeen Test
Center (ATC) and the Operational Test Command (OTC).
CVII is defining the communication infrastructure for
modular instrumentation used by the U.S. Army for test
and training exercises. The specification includes
hardware, protocol / services, and application level
interface specifications that are based on a common
object model.

CVII will provide a basis for development of diverse
modules which may be used or "tailored" to the
instrumentation requirements of the system under test
without the expense of an entirely new instrumentation
suite.
         CVII Player Unit Compliance Highlights

         Asynchronous and /or Isochronous connections
•   Level 3
    IP over IEEE-1394
     TCP
     FTP
•   Level 4
    CVII Devices make use of DHCP

            Recommendations
Good judgment
comes from
experience, and
a lot of that
comes from bad
judgment.
     Will Rogers
                 Embedded Instrumentation
                    Recommendations

• Consider the information life cycle up front
• Define the architectures first
• Include flexible configuration capabilities
• Include pre-programmed algorithms or
  scripting capabilities
• Do not attempt to embed everything
• Exploit the synergies with embedded
  diagnostics and embedded training
