    The GPATE System is the maintenance solution at level two (ML2) for the avionics units of Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft. GPATE program main target is the development and production of a general purpose ATE (GPATE CORE) and a collection of TPS whose outstanding features are its reduced footprint, portability, rapid deployment capability and obsolescence mitigation design. The paper outlines the most challenging requirements of the program and describes the design approaches that addressed them during the development phase. It describes also the GPATE CORE ATE as an innovative solution in the field of transportable general purpose ATEs. The paper shows how the technical issues were solved and tested, and the problems encountered. Finally it outlines the present status of GPATE program, with nine COREs and 48 TPS in production, and the next future applications forecasted. View full abstract»

  • ECSAMS - bridging the gap from EC flightline test to backshop and laboratory support

    The AN/USM-670 is the current standard in electronic combat (EC) system flight line level test - supporting a wide variety of EC systems across multiple platforms. In the lab, the test and maintenance of these same EC systems requires racks of stimulus and measurement instrumentation, and sophisticated operator knowledge of the stimulus and analysis requirements. Realizing that the USM-670 could be a useful (and cost-effective) asset in the lab environment, the question was posed: "How could the USM-670 hardware (and more importantly, the software) is modified to fill the needs of laboratory testing?" This paper will discuss the design evolution of the electronic combat stimulus and measurement system (ECSAMS), a set of rack mountable VME-based virtual instruments optimized for backshop / lab test and evaluation of EC systems including both the radar warning receivers and jamming countermeasures systems. Included will be a discussion of the hardware and software architecture, stimulus and measurement capabilities, and the user interface. To aide in the discussion - and to demonstrate ECSAMS capabilities and ease-of-use - several common EC test / measurement requirements will be presented, along with the ECSAMS solution. Examples will include: complex threat (stimulus) development; use of test scenarios; automated measurement of jamming techniques including range, velocity, amplitude modulation, and noise View full abstract»

  • Introduction to the next generation automatic test system (NGATS)

    The next generation automatic test system (NGATS) is the latest addition to the integrated family of test equipment (IFTE), developed and managed by product manager, test, measurement and diagnostic equipment (PM TMDE). The NGATS, commonly known as the base shop test facility (V)6, joins the other BSTFs developed by the off platform, automatic test system program. NGATS is a highly mobile, rapidly deployable, general-purpose, reconfigurable automatic test system. The system is designed to support the testing and screening of all army weapon systems to maintain their readiness to shoot, move and communicate. Benefits of the NGATS include helping facilitate the standardization of army automatic test equipment, increasing weapon system availability and facilitating MOS consolidation. Additionally, it reduces repair parts inventory, increases mobility, deployability, affordability and supportability, reduces footprint of automated test equipment and screens for no evidence of failure (NEOF). NGATS assures compliance with joint NxTest architecture. NGATS will support the agile rapid global combat support (ARGCS) advanced concept technology demonstration (ACTD) by using a common framework for DoD automatic test systems (ATS). Spiral development of this system will ultimately modernize and replace three existing systems, direct support electronic systems test set (DSESTS), BSTF (V)3, and BSTF (V)5. The NGATS will not only support legacy systems but will also support new systems. View full abstract»
