Electronic Warfare Systems tests, whether performed in the lab or on the range, require extensive configuration of the test equipment, all attributes of which must be stored for later data reduction and analysis. Many tests require similar configurations; it would therefore be useful if general-purpose configuration templates could be built once then reused whenever necessary. In this paper, a data model is developed which stores complex EW-system test configurations. Configurations may be reused at multiple levels. Should new kinds of data be required in the future, the model is extensible. Equally important, the model can be pared down in uncomplicated configuration situations. Finally, less frustration during data reduction and analysis would occur since the model facilitates straightforward data entry. Software that reduces data gleaned from EW-system tests may use this model both to develop databases for configuration storage and as part of the internal model of the reduction software itself.
