  • Abstract:
    In 1990, Lockheed Integrated Systems Company (LISC) was awarded a contract, under the Crescent Demonstration Project, to demonstrate the integration of Weigh In Motion (WIM), Automatic Vehicle Classification (AVC) and Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI) technologies. This award represented the beginning of the demonstration phase of the Heavy Vehicle Electronic License Plate (HELP) Program, involving 15 states, one port authority, and trucking industry representatives. After achieving some success in applying these technologies, especially in Oregon, a demonstration project was conceived among six states -- Washington, Oregon, California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas -- to integrate these technologies, develop an AVI capability, and link them together by a computerized communications system and data base to be provided by a contractor. Thus began the Crescent Demonstration Project. LISC developed a system architecture, based on the RFP requirements and implemented this system in 1992. This document is one of several which comprise the evaluation of the Crescent Project. It will provide background and set the stage for the assessment of the six areas set out in the September Crescent Evaluation plan: Systems Architecture; Systems Communication; Application Software; Crescent Database; Site Availability; and Data Reconciliation. There were four high level system objectives as outlined in the RFP and the USC proposal: Data collection for highway planning, data to aid enforcement, pre-clear and transparent border clearances of participating motor carriers, and one-stop credential and permit processing for participating states and motor carriers. The Crescent System, as implemented has successfully demonstrated its ability to support three of the four major objectives of the project -- data collection for highway planning; pre-clear and transparent border processing; and providing data to aid enforcement. Further, portions of the one-stop shopping objective have been successfully demonstrated, from a computer processing perspective. True one-stop shopping must be better defined and the system tested against that definition before a real assessment can be made. 24 p.
