Test advantages for aircraft

Test advantages for aircraft Smiths Aerospace is a major supplier to manufacturers of military and commercial aircraft, spacecraft and ground vehicles around the world. It designs, develops and manufactures equipment such as electrical power systems, vehicle management systems, data management technology and in-flight re-fuelling systems. A key aspect to the work is testing at all stages to appropriate international standards. Helping to fulfil these test requirements, to such standards as MIL-STD-704F and SAE AS5692, are three load banks from REO UK. Two are currently employed on projects for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) whilst the third is being used to help with the development of a new solid state circuit breaker for the aircraft industry to facilitate electrical fault detection. According to Steve Curwen, JSF EPMS Systems Team Leader for Smiths Aerospace, the two REO load banks enable his team to test the various systems under development at high power and high voltage. The third unit, which is in fact three units in one, was designed to support the development of arc fault protection and verify aircraft circuit breakers performance.
