Marvin Test Solutions Announces New SmartCan™ Orders

Extension of Global Installed Base Includes Many “Firsts”
Irvine, Calif. – January 30, 2018 – Marvin Test Solutions, Inc., a trusted provider of globally-deployed innovative test solutions for military, aerospace, and manufacturing organizations, announced that it has received new contracts for its MTS-3060 SmartCanTM  from multiple international customers to support armament systems test on different platforms. When deployed, the SmartCan’s international customer list will grow to 12 countries using 8 different aircraft of various types and blocks.

The new SmartCan contracts cover F/A-18, Hawk, F-16, and F-15 as well as the first Army test application.

Flightline Test in Your Hand
The handheld MTS-3060 SmartCan is a universal O-Level armament test set capable of testing both legacy and "smart", MIL-STD-1760-based, weapons systems. The SmartCan supports multiple aircraft and armament systems in a single hand-held, battery-operated unit, allowing maintainers to benefit from a common test set for multiple systems. The advanced capabilities of the MTS-3060 enable it to bridge the Armament Test Gap that exists on legacy and 5th Gen platforms.


“The SmartCan is proving to be the choice of an increasing number of countries worldwide for O-Level test of smart and legacy armament systems, replacing multiple obsolete test sets with a single test solution that is smaller and easier to use while providing enhanced test capabilities,” said Major General Stephen T. Sargeant, USAF (Ret.), the CEO of MTS who also serves as the Vice President of Strategic Development for The Marvin Group.  “We are gratified that these customers have selected the SmartCan, and we look forward to working closely with them to ensure the success of their maintenance and sustainment programs.”
