With a STATEMENT OF WORK supplied by our customer, we can engineer,
design, fabricate, assemble, power up, and deliver custom systems designed for your
specific applications. Below are some examples of custom projects ZDATUM
is a Wrap Around Test Set that provides for automated testing of an avionics mission
computer used in helicopter applications. Test control via a PC-based test suite commands
the multiple mission computer CPU's to exercise processing, memory, and I/O functions. The
wrap-around concept uses the mission computer I/O subsystems to both stimulate and receive
known I/O sequences. The W.A.T.S. provides video sources, Ethernet hub support, power
sequencing, I/O signal conditioning, and video format conversion to interface to
commercial CRT & LCD displays.
The "Demonstrator" is a rack mounted
VME computer system containing custom cabling and a unique split backplane
that provides for the real-time demonstration of two helicopter mission
computers. The split backplane allows for the installation of two
separate computer systems in the same rack mount space, each with
its' own cabling and power supplies. The rack mount unit is constructed
to allow transportation to customer sites, conventions, and shows.
It provides demonstration of I/O management and the rendering of graphics
& video images on various display surfaces. The configuration
is also used by software developers working in a lab environment,
away from actual helicopter assets.
