Abstract—Efforts by the Department of Defense to increase use of commercial or dual-use technologies have resulted in the levying of new requirements on automatic test systems. One of the areas where requirements are being levied is in the exchange of diagnostic and maintenance information. These requirements have led to the creation or revision of several IEEE standards intended to support such information exchange. In this paper, we explain the nature of the revisions being made to IEEE STD 1232 (AI-ESTATE). We also explain the nature of the information being modeled for IEEE P1636 (SIMICA) and its relationship to AI-ESTATE. Finally, we provide a discussion of a new XML-based exchange format being incorporated into AI-ESTATE, SIMICA, and related standards to satisfy exchange requirements under the Do
