Aircraft Avionics Flight Test

Share |

Summary:

Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote This three day module emphasizes the fundamental knowledge needed by evaluators for all aircraft avionics systems evaluations. The lectures lay the foundation on which all avionics systems. Evaluations are accomplished. This module is designed to provide the "big picture" of Systems testing. The course identifies the differences between systems and vehicle testing with emphasis on digital architecture. 1553 Data Bus architecture is described in detail, and the student is also exposed to ARINC 429, Mil-Std 1760, Firewire, EBR-1553 and other future applications. Time, Space, Position Information is described in its relation and importance to Systems testing.

The audience for this course will encompass Flight Test Engineers, Program Managers, military and civilian aerospace workers, Flight Test Range and Instrumentation support. The course is appropriate for newly hired or assigned personnel at these locations as well as seasoned veterans in the Test and Evaluation areas.

Tuition:

What you will learn:

Be familiar with types of Data Busses, Avionic systems specifications and regulations, and the causes of EMI. Understand the unique problems associated with Avionics and Weapons Testing,1553 data bus architectures, Data collection, reading, and data analysis procedures.

Course Outline:

  1. Why Systems Flight Test? What are the Differences between Systems Test and P&FQ Testing? What is the difference between Development versus Demonstration Programs? What are the differences between Contractor, DT, and OT Testing
  2. Time, Space, Position Information (TSPI) What drives TSPI Requirements; and what are the accuracies of TSPI systems in use today?
  3. Data Bus Architecture; how is data transferred amongst avionics systems? Description, operation and applications of the following data bus types are described: 1553 Data Busses, 1760, ARINC 429/629, EBR 1553, STANAG 3910, Fiber Channel, and TCP/IP.
  4. Data Acquisition, Reduction and Analysis - How is data acquired from the aircraft? Typical Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) systems are explained as well as digital data and video capture systems.
  5. Whenever current is flowing EM fields are present; these fields can wreak havoc on aircraft avionics systems. The lectures will cover EMI/EMC, how to test for it (bonding, Victim/Source, Near and Far Field) and how to avoid interference. .
