October 1, 2019 - Vista, California - Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rentals and
sales company headquartered in North County San Diego, has published a blog post
entitled "Take to the Air with Dependable Avionics Testing," explaining how to source
the right electronic load for your next project.
"Avionics systems assist pilots in providing safe flights on commercial, industrial,
and military aircraft. Failures in those systems usually leads to catastrophe, stressing
the importance of proper testing of avionics systems and their components. As avionics
systems become more automated and autonomous, they become more complex in their
software and hardware. Suitable test equipment must keep pace with the functionality
needed to 'exercise' avionic systems and subsystems under real-world conditions,
so that designers can fully understand the behavior of those systems, installers
and maintainers know their performance levels, and pilots can count on reliable
performance. Because of the complexity, a variety of test instruments and software
tools are needed to test modern avionics systems to assist in development, production,
Modern avionics equipment suites consist of hundreds of systems and modules to
help pilots fly safely to their destinations. No matter the size, whether small
private planes or large commercial and military jets, aircraft depend upon avionic
systems to maintain optimal routes, avoid air traffic, and steer clear of bad weather.
Avionics equipment provides communications from the air to the ground, between two
or more aircraft, reception of signals from orbiting satellites, and ongoing measurements
of temperature, wind speeds, and other environmental parameters which can affect
a flight. Two of the better-known avionics systems are distance measurement equipment
(DME) and tactical air navigation (TACAN) systems. Additional systems include altimeters,
weather radars, Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers, traffic collision avoidance
systems (TCAS), traffic information service (TIS), and temperature measurement systems..."

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
