This paper lays the ground work for a common test platform architecture being adopted by a number of organizations in the aerospace industry. Test engineers realize that integration is not a one time event. This paper discusses an architecture based on a modular hardware and software platform that ensures design freedom and the ability to upgrade test systems without rearchitecting the entire test system. Additionally engineers in diverse applications such as structural test, turbine/engine test, avionics, environmental screening, and hydraulic actuator test can now use common elements of design and implementation hence saving their organizations money and development time.
