We are a Build-to-Print manufacturer with the production and quality processes necessary to service the demanding military and commercial markets, but it is our engineering capabilities that really distinguish us. As an industry-recognized system integrator, we are able to apply this expertise to Build-to-Print projects. System and mechanical design engineers review, update and correct documentation, so that the as-built product matches the documentation and is reproducible and maintainable in the future. We can also update assembly drawings, Bills Of Material (BOMs) and software if additional test capability or obsolete equipment replacement is desired.
Astronics Test Systems has received high marks from military and commercial customers for meeting or exceeding demanding schedules, contributing to product design improvement and making the process a collaborative effort. Our Build-to-Print expertise includes display ESS testers, radio communication test systems, cable assemblies, and interface test adapters (ITAs). We have also delivered product into non-test environments, e.g. communication subsystems (prime hardware) which are installed onboard nuclear submarines. We were integral in taking this military product from low rate initial production (LRIP) to full rate production (FRP) by enhancing our manufacturing/test processes and participating in documentation overhaul.
