Avionics Test System Platform Is Reconfigurable

The Avionics Test Bench and Avionics Test Studio lays claim to being the first reconfigurable PXI-based test platform for avionics navigation and communications. Employing 3000 Series PXI modules, Avionics Test Studio provides a suite of software-defined instruments that perform signal generation from 100 kHz up to 6 GHz. Software tools generate and test traditional nav/comm signals including the latest airborne data link protocols such as VHF data link Mode 2 and Mode 3. Also in development is a signal analysis package covering the same avionics test functions. Support is on board for all standard signals including ADF, ILS, VOR, VHF comm, Marker Beacon, Selcal, DME, LRA, and VDB. Avionics Test Bench, a complete turnkey test system that replaces several discrete instruments, offers both signal generation and analysis in a single PXI chassis and is available in two configurations. The basic configuration, ATB-3000, includes a touch-screen PXI chassis with built-in controller and a 3025C RF signal generator and synthesizer module. The standalone configuration includes Avionics Test Studio signal generator software. Optional configurations are available for ATE rack mounting or an external monitor and controller. Pricing starts at $27,750. AEROFLEX INC., Plainview, NY. (800) 835-2352.
