Summary form only given, as follows. An integrated measurement system is described that can make fast (100-MHz) multichannel real-time digitized measurements, process the data, and file results data in a computer disc storage system. High-level commands enable automated sequences to be set up with autocalibration and scaling of the data. The data can be reviewed and edited prior to storage so that only useful portions are filed. High-resolution screen graphics and full color plots of the data are available immediately. The result is that scientific measurements that previously required high-speed oscilloscopes or instrumentation recorders, and then painstaking data analysis, can now be performed on local workstations, with data preprocessed for mainframe archiving. With this integrated system, ballistics tests that normally take two weeks are now reduced to a few minutes.<>
