United Technologies chooses Advint for development of F-35 JSF Test System

Effort encompasses Design and Build of Test System and associated Test Program Sets

Advint has been selected by United Technologies, a leading defense company, to design and build automatic test systems and associated Test Program Sets (TPSs) including Interface Test Adapters (ITAs) in support of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) power subsystem avionics. The program includes development of a Power Augmentation Rack (PAR) consisting of high power COTS equipment as well as custom Test Replaceable Units (TRUs) to supplement the Lockheed Martin LM-Star test system. Advint is providing equipment design, fabrication, software development, and systems integration services in support of factory/field aircraft power avionics test and maintenance.

The JSF is a joint, multinational acquisition program for the Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and eight (8) cooperative international partners. Expected to be the largest military aircraft procurement ever, the stealth, supersonic F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (F-35) will replace a wide range of aging fighter and strike aircraft for the U.S. Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and allied defense forces worldwide. The program’s hallmark is affordability achieved through a high degree of aircraft commonality among three variants: conventional takeoff/landing (CTOL), carrier variant (CV) and short takeoff/vertical landing (STOVL) aircraft. Innovative concepts and advanced technologies will significantly reduce weapon system life-cycle costs while meeting the strike weapon system requirements of military customers.
