G Systems developed a system with crucial use for multiple high profile aerospace applications. We designed an integrated system that can acquire various types of data. Including analog, digital, video, and additional data transferred from other systems through reflective memory, it is used in the F-35 (Iron Bird) Vehicle Systems Integration Facility (VSIF) that monitors aircraft sub-system integration tests. The solution has highly flexible software, NI hardware and an expandable PXI platform. The system has run reliably for 15 years. This high-channel-count technology is also used in our rapid development of structural test systems for the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV). We developed three systems with important roles in structural testing of the MPCV. This technology has unlimited potential applications.
