Geotest Wins Contracts To Build Test Systems for Fighter Planes
Geotest Wins Contracts To Build Test Systems for Fighter PlanesIrvine, CA (August 21, 2002) - Geotest-Marvin Test Systems, Inc., a global supplier of electronic test equipment for military, aerospace, semiconductors, telecom, medical, and industrial applications was awarded contracts totaling over $2 million to provide test systems for the F-15 Eagle and F-16 Falcon fighters.
The F-15 contract is for Organizational-Level (O-Level) testers that are used at the flight-line to verify the fighter’s armament systems. The hand-held testers simulate weapons and enable users to perform pre-mission verification of the operational status of all armament systems. The F-15 is an all-weather tactical fighter equipped with a wide array of electronic warfare systems.
The F-16 contract is for a TS-2000 and several Test Program Sets (TPSs) for the F-16’s Stores Management System (SMS). The TS-2000, deployed since 1995, is an Intermediate-Level (I-Level) and Depot-Level test set for the F-16, AH-1, and AH-64 aircrafts. A comprehensive mixed-signal test set, the TS-2000 supports both analog platforms like the AH-1 and the AH-64 and sophisticated digital platforms like the F-16 Falcon. The F-16 Fighting Falcon is the world’s most popular multi-role fighter with a sophisticated Stores (weapon) Management System. The TS-2000 enables users to test, troubleshoot, and repair any SMS Line Replaceable Units (LRUs), thus reducing inventory levels and maintenance costs while increasing mission readiness.
"These two contracts reaffirm our strong position in servicing our military customers and reflect our continued market growth in the test and measurement industry," said Loofie Gutterman, Geotest’s president. Geotest military test equipment supports platforms such as F-15, F-16, AH-1, AH-64, OH-58, SH-60, Tiger, Bradley, and more. Geotest also provides turn-key test solutions for many commercial electronics markets in the US and abroad.
