Aero Instruments Buys Teradyne ATE

By Tish Drake | October 7, 2011

Aero Instruments & Avionics has purchased the Spectrum CTS avionics testing system from Teradyne, of North Reading, Mass., the companies announced Thursday.

Specifically designed to perform complete diagnostics on the avionics systems of Boeing 737, 747, 757, 767 airplanes, the Spectrum CTS also provides new capability for 737NG, 777 and offers future capability to support the 787 Dreamliner and 747-8. The Spectrum CTS will replace the ATS-182a which Aero currently operates.

“In order to maintain the quality service that we are recognized for in the industry, going forward we need to move the testing capabilities of the ATS-182a to a new platform that is approved by the [line replaceable unit] manufacturer and that will allow Aero to expand its capabilities for future growth. The Teradyne Spectrum CTS is that tester,” said Jeff Plewinski, Aero’s vice president of Engineering Services.

“We are very pleased that Aero Instruments has chosen to replace their ATS-182a with the Teradyne Spectrum CTS system. The Teradyne Spectrum CTS allows Aero Instruments to expand their support of Boeing’s fleet to include the 777 and 737NG, and to maintain their support of Boeing’s 737, 747, 757, 767 fleet of airplanes,” said Attila Shevket, product marketing manager, Teradyne.
