    This paper presents the results of an investigation of the application of the Global Positioning System (GPS) to real-time integrated missile navigation. We present quantifiable measures of navigation accuracy as a function of GPS user segment parameters. These user segment parameters include antenna phase response accuracy, single versus dual frequency, and Kalman filter structure and size. We al... View full abstract»

    As a circuit is tested, the current drawn from a power supply can vary as different functions are invoked by the test. The current draw can be plotted against time, showing a characteristic trace for the test performed. Sensors in the ATS power supply can be used to monitor the current flow during test execution. Defective components can be classified using a Neural Network according to the patter... View full abstract»

    The 1990s have been stressful for commercial airline industry: fierce competition has caused the demise of several carriers. The resulting drive to slash operating expenses has bolstered development of avionics industry standards for automated test equipment. Rockwell's Collins Air Transport Division (CATD) has begun to market compliant test gear that airline maintenance departments wishing to acq... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the principal concepts and initial implementation of an innovative approach for embedding a diagnostic reasoning capability onto a microcontroller. The approach is predicated upon the use of an automated concurrent engineering tool set that is utilized to develop a diagnostic knowledge base which is subsequently incorporated into a microcontroller's diagnostic run-time system....

    An Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) system that is supportable provides all of the operational requirements necessary to support fleet weapon systems, from installation, to operation and maintenance, to disposal. To be supportable, ATE must then minimize facility, personnel, training, supply support and support equipment impacts. Furthermore, should the ATE fail to operate, impacts to the systems wh...
