We provide an independent, Air Force approved testing service for remote terminals designed for MIL-STD-1553. Remote terminals are tested to the "RT Validation Test Plan," Appendix A to MIL-HDBK-1553. Testing service is conveniently provided at your facility or in Phoenix.

We made a major contribution to the development of the RT VALIDATION TEST PLAN. Our years of testing experience and familiarity with the Test Plan enable us to provide assistance in interpreting test results and trouble-shooting problems. Our test procedure effectively implements the Test Plan and a comprehensive test report documents the test results.

Our customers include the Air Force, Navy, and NASA, manufacturers of 1553 products, and various American and international corporations.

How long does it take?

Validation testing of a dual standby redundant remote terminal is expected to take approximately 8 to 12 hours providing no problems are encountered. Testing time could be reduced if testing is terminated early or extended if trouble-shooting is done during testing.
