Airbus Defence and Space supplies German Armed Forces with new assembly testing instrument
Significant reduction in time to restore operational readiness
In addition, the testing instrument gives the user access to the comprehensive Interactive Electronic Technical Documentation (IETD) installed on the device. Furthermore, the user can read out the hardware and software configuration, for example serial number, period of operation and current software version of individual assemblies, or update the existing software version.
The equipment can be installed on any platform, from handheld computers to hardened notebooks. Thanks to the system's modular architecture, additional test modules - even from other manufacturers - can be added onto the basic software system flexibly and in any way the user likes. As a result, the M²D can be upgraded for any hardware or system test - from radio equipment and combat vehicles to aircraft - and can therefore be used comprehensively across all branches of the armed forces.
