This thesis studies the feasibility of developing a closed-loop shipboard sensor calibration system with two main objectives. The first objective was to reduce the number of personnel required to calibrate a shipboard sensor by 50%. The second was to reduce the time required to complete the calibration process by 60%. This was achieved by displaying the sensor data and the calibration standard data on a tablet PC. Wireless technology was used to transmit the data from the sensor and the calibration standard to the tablet PC. The data from the sensor is sent via IEEE 802.11b wireless LAN using DataSocket protocol and the calibration standard is sent via Bluetooth protocol. The technology can be installed and used on current ships in the United States Navy. Four software programs were developed to accomplish these goals. One program runs on the tablet PC and the other three run on the network capable application processor (NCAP). These four programs accomplish the goals stated.
