Description

Technology is ever-changing in the field of aircraft avionics and new systems may require a different approach to testing.  The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) revises its regulatory material as a result of system updates and therefore requirements for airworthiness testing also need to be updated.

Test and Evaluation of Aircraft Avionics and Weapon Systems, 2nd Edition is a unique training book which serves as both a text and practical reference for all personnel involved in avionics and weapons system evaluation and testing, in the air and on the ground. Whether training pilots and personnel or planning to test systems, this book provides readers with the fundamentals and practical information needed to get the job done.

This new edition has been updated and expanded to offer additional chapter exercises and include three new chapters;

  • UAV technology has exploded on the scene, therefore creating a high demand for a guide to UAV testing
  • Operational Test and Evaluation is a specialised form of testing accomplished by the end-user before final acceptance of the product
  • Night Vision Systems and Helmet Mounted Displays are also newer technologies advanced in the revised edition
