Marvin Test Solutions Completes SmartCan™ Deliveries to Israeli Air Force

Irvine, Calif. – December 12, 2019 - Marvin Test Solutions, Inc. (MTS), a trusted provider of globally-deployed test solutions for military, aerospace, and manufacturing organizations, announced that it has successfully completed deliveries of all MTS-3060A SmartCan Universal O-Level Armament Test Sets to the Israeli Air Force (IAF).

The rugged MTS-3060A SmartCan™ is the most advanced flightline hand-held test set available, capable of testing all Alternate Mission Equipment (AME) and Aircraft Armament Equipment (AAE) including pylons, launchers, bomb racks, and pods. Addressing an armament test gap that exists across legacy 4th and 5th generation aircraft equipped with Smart weapon technology (MIL-STD-1760), the MTS-3060A enables support for any aircraft and any Smart or legacy armament system.


“The IAF has selected the SmartCan from Marvin Test Solutions as a universal flightline armament test set for F-16 and F-15 because of its robust test capabilities,” said Major Dror Hadar from the Israeli Air Force. “With the SmartCan, IAF can replace several obsolete test sets with a single test solution that is smaller, easier to use, and still provides more test capabilities than all the obsolete test sets it replaces.”

“We are pleased to support one of the U.S.’ closest allies with a proven universal flightline test solution that greatly improves warfighter effectiveness,” said Major General Stephen T. Sargeant, USAF (Ret.), CEO of Marvin Test Solutions. “Continuing to gain acceptance worldwide, the SmartCan reduces the time and number of maintainers required to perform all armament testing, including the critical MIL-STD-1760 functionality test required to ensure successful Smart munitions employment, while reducing logistics and training needs.  Furthermore, The SmartCan provides customers the most cybersecure, hand-held O-Level armament test set available.”

Incorporating advanced measurement capabilities to support new and Smart munitions and armament, the MTS-3060A has the capacity to grow as new and more complex weapon systems are added to the inventory.  The SmartCan is currently deployed in over 12 countries on multiple aircraft and utilized by the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School as a Smart weapons simulator for JDAM and AMRAAM.
