Automatic Test Markup Language (ATML) is an emerging standard in military and aerospace industries for sharing data among different components of a test system. ATML supports test program, test asset, and unit under test (UUT) interoperability within an automatic test environment. ATML accomplishes this through a standard XML schema for exchanging UUT test and diagnostic information among components of the test system.

ATML specifies standards for test environments that encompass the total product life cycle and defines an integrated set of test-related information that supports the information needs of test environments for testing applications.

ATML standards focus on the following areas:


ATML is intended to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Facilitate the communication, sharing, and reuse of product design and test information for the purpose of testing the product.
  • Facilitate test program set (TPS) portability and interoperability.
  • Facilitate instrument interchangeability.
  • Facilitate the development, integration, and use of test software and test software development tools.
  • Support the application of integrated diagnostics.
  • Support modular software architectures based on a framework that supports reusable software products.

Refer to the ATML website for more information about ATML.
