Engineers at the Joint Advanced Distribution Simulation Joint Test Force (JADS JTF) needed an analysis software that covered large datasets in a hurry to evaluate their Advanced Distributed Simulation (ADS) test environments.

They found their solution with Metrica, data management and analysis software, from Metrica, Inc. in Winchester, Mass.

"Metrica`s use of array fields in its database tables was the single most important reason we selected it," says Dean Gonzalez, Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) senior analyst for JADS JTF. "The tool allowed us to handle huge datasets quickly and easily. Queries that would have retrieved thousands of records in a typical database were reduced to just one or a few records in Metrica."

JADS used Metrica to manage, analyze, and visualize data collected from test events and rehearsals. The program`s analysts are determining the utility of distributed simulation for testing and evaluating military systems.

The test simulated an F-18 aircraft launching an AIM-9 air-to-air missile at a F-14 aircraft. - J.M.

Scientists working on the Delta Clipper Experimental Advanced (DC-XA) were able to save most of the electronics in the spacecraft`s avionics rack with the PC/104 enclosure from Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City, Utah.
