SUPERVISORY CONTROL AND DATA ACQUISITION (SCADA) SYSTEMS FOR COMMAND, CONTROL, COMMUNICATIONS, COMPUTER, INTELLIGENCE, SURVEILLANCE, AND RECONNAISSANCE (C4ISR) FACILITIES

active, Most Current
Organization: ARMY
Publication Date: 21 January 2006
Status: active
Page Count: 94
scope:

The fundamental concepts of control systems, including industry standards and definitions are presented as an introduction to the subject. Topics covered include system architecture, network communication methods, reliability considerations, operator interfaces, and commissioning. Control system architecture review and recommended SCADA configurations for typical small, medium, and large facilities are presented. Special reliability and threat-resistance considerations governing SCADA systems are discussed. Operational issues including commissioning, maintenance practices and requirements for SCADA system documentation are also presented.

Purpose

The purpose of this publication is to provide guidance for facilities managers and engineers in selection, design, installation, commissioning, and operation and maintenance of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems for command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) facilities. SCADA systems provide control and monitoring of the mechanical and electrical utility systems serving the mission critical loads. Although this technical manual (TM) is written primarily for C4ISR facilities and reflects the high reliability required for those facilities, it may also be used a reference for similar systems in other facility types
