Astronics Test Systems traces its roots to Racal Instruments - a test instrumentation leader for more than 50 years.
Racal Instruments was acquired by EADS North America in October 2004, ensuring the future of the company that launched the world's first compact electronic frequency counter in the late 1950's. Since then the Racal InstrumentsTM brand has represented leadership in general purpose test equipment, automatic test equipment, VXIbus modules, communication test sets, laser diode and photonics test systems and burn-in test stations, chassis, switching, and turnkey system integration.
EADS North America Test and Services was acquired by Astronics Corp in 2014.
The Racal Instruments heritage provides Astronics Test Systems with highly-competitive solutions that include laser diode burn-in, jet, shaft, and turboprop engine testers, automotive testing, digital communications, and radar simulators.
We continue to provide COTS and custom leading-edge instrumentation products which include a broad spectrum of technologies, such as GPIB, VXI, PXI, and, most recently, LXI and Ethernet/LAN-controlled.
