White Paper: Where’s The Beer? A Paradigm Shift in Flight-Line Armament Testing

In the Air Force world, armament testing is done with a small, battery-operated tester called an Armament Circuits Pre-Load Test Set (ACPTS), commonly referred to as a “beercan” due to its shape and size. The typical beercan is a rudimentary test set with few capabilities and limited performance.This paper discusses the requirements of flight-line armament testers and introduces a universal beercan, the MTS-3060 SmartCan with capabilities previously unavailable for the flight-line.
