The International Society of Automation (www.isa.org) is a nonprofit professional association that sets the standard for those who apply engineering and technology to improve the management, safety, and cybersecurity of modern automation and control systems used across industry and critical infrastructure. Founded in 1945, ISA develops widely used global standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; hosts conferences and exhibits; and provides networking and career development programs for its 36,000 members and 350,000 customers around the world.
ISA owns Automation.com, a leading online publisher of automation-related content, and is the founding sponsor of The Automation Federation (www.automationfederation.org), an association of non-profit organizations serving as “The Voice of Automation.” Through a wholly owned subsidiary, ISA bridges the gap between standards and their implementation with the ISA Security Compliance Institute (www.isasecure.org) and the ISA Wireless Compliance Institute (www.isa100wci.org).

The Test Measurement Division (TMD) of ISA has approximately 500 members mostly from the United States but also from a globally diverse membership. TMD promotes the technical areas associated with measurements for tests including instrumentation and sensor development, application of instrumentation and measurements to test, calibration of instrumentation systems, accuracy of the instrument output, and design of instrumentation system data acquisition and processing architecture that turn the measurement or sensor output into knowledge of the test article's performance, operability, structural integrity, maintainability and functionality.
The types of instrumentation or measurements include conventional pressure, temperature and flow systems, miniaturized systems such MEMS and NEMS, non-interference systems such as laser anemometry and clearance measurements, and advanced systems such as thermal phosphors, sensors for high temperature and harsh environments and further miniaturization of systems. The measurements may be applied to test hardware in quantities up to 5000 for complicated development systems or only a few measurements for simpler mostly static systems. Test measurements provide the information to certify that the test hardware or system will perform its required processes and provide a path towards full automation of the system processes.
Membership in TMD affords and enhances contact with other professionals involved in test measurement through newsletters describing Division and ISA activities, technical articles, and division contacts. The division also sponsors, along with the Aerospace Industries Division and the Process Measurement and Control Division, the International Instrumentation Symposium. This symposium has paper sessions, tutorials, workshops and short courses on the latest in instrumentation and instrumentation systems. Proceedings of the symposium document and make available the papers of the symposium. The Symposium proceedings are free to attendees and are available on the ISA website under "publishing."
For your benefit, get involved in TMD! Help us foster the instrumentation and measurement disciplines. You may participate in our conferences and symposiums by writing a paper or preparing a presentation, attending the conference to gain knowledge and offer your experience to others, chairing a session, reviewing papers, participating on the symposium or conference staff and participating on the TMD staff. If you are interested in joining the Test Measurement Division and want more information you can contact the Division Director, Grant Patterson or the Division Director Elect, Brandon Jones at Joshua.Jones@arnold.af.mil. If we cannot provide the information you need, we can refer you to other technical professionals in the Division. We look forward to hearing from you!
