With the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program underway, many new airborne products will have to be tested and maintained for the next few decades. The tester selected by the U.S. Air Force to be the standard platform for manufacturing, ESS (Environmental Stress Screening) and depot-level testing is the Lockheed Martin LM-STAR test set. LM STAR is an open-architecture test set with most of the test set’s components being Commercial
Off The Shelf (COTS) products. Using COTS products helps reduce up-front and maintenance costs and simplified the development process. The test set platform is only the beginning and hundreds of Test Program Sets (TPSs) will be developed for the LM STAR in the next decade to support the 3000+ aircraft to be used by the U.S. Air Force and our allies.
