Modernizing T&E Flight Test Execution Phase Planning & Analysis

By: Joe Murphy

Join an AGI Webinar discussing the present-day challenges in aerospace systems test & evaluation program execution.

T&E engineering disciplines within A&D companies and government test teams face growing technical challenges with the ever-increasing complexity of aerospace mission systems, sensors, and software. And they face budget challenges given their spot in the program life cycles, and the test-point density and re-fly rates they typically experience make it hard for them to meet program test milestones and delivery dates.

Most of the engineering disciplines in A&D have enjoyed years of maturing CAD and CAE tools with the test discipline left unsupported by tool developers and left to produce and reproduce toolsets using math libraries on a program by program basis.

Complex systems require many test points and test flights and programs generally communicate their progress through reporting of test-point completion rates. Program managers often find it difficult to fully communicate capability evolution and attainment along with test-points completion reports.

Continually increasing quantities of data from complex systems often means that much of the collected data – obtained at great expense – goes un-analyzed. Test-point on-condition results are often not realized in this vast quantity of data leading to lost significant opportunity.

Please join AGI’s Joe Murphy on September 12, 2018 at 2:00 PM ET as he discusses T&E planning and analysis, and details a toolset designed specifically to address these challenges.
