Advanced Testing Science

In a typical avionics system, there are thousands of internal and external circuit paths moving electrons through thousands more physical interconnection points which are all aging to some degree and will fail intermittently long before they fail permanently. It only takes one of these devices reaching this condition to render...

No Fault Found (NFF)

The maintenance of aircraft electronic Line Replaceable Assemblies (LRUs) and Weapon Replaceable Assemblies (WRAs) pose an ever increasing challenge.  Much of the challenge is related to intermittent faults which occur due to aging wiring and connections.  These intermittent problems manifest themselves as "bad actor" LRUS and WRAs or as repair...
