    The National Bureau of Standards a t Boulder Colorado has developed a system for calibrating detectors used to measure TEA laser pulses El]. This system operates under the control of a desktop computer, which permits the rapid precise acquisition of data from several measuring devices during a testir:g period lasting approximately 5 minutes. Without the computer-controlled feature, the measurement... View full abstract»

    The requirements, for which a general purpose automatic pulse measuring system (APMS) must meet to be a useful tool, are given. This paper will attempt to convince the test equipment manufacturing community that there is a real market for an APMS and the development of a standard "off-the-shelf" APMS should begin now to meet future testing quotas.
