Stop Reinventing the Wheel: Focus on Maximum Software Reuse

When kicking off a test cell software development project, one of the first considerations is typically, should we build or buy? Both commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and custom software have advantages and disadvantages to consider in any scenario. Most of the time, COTS software will not meet 100 percent of your requirements, but it may get you most of the way there.

Build Test Systems with Maximum Reuse Using NI VeriStand and TestStand

Join leaders from National Instruments and G Systems on Thursday, July 20 at 10:30 a.m. CST as they discuss how to maximize efficiency and speed test systems development using a hybrid development approach. During this live Webinar, we’ll share real-world customer application examples and how we used COTS software along side custom development to meet stringent application requirements.

G Systems' Aircraft Radome Test System Helps Ensure that Passengers Soar Safely

Our video shows how G Systems' radome test system validates accurate radome repair and ensures aircraft passengers are safe

An airplane radome often serves as the nose cone of the aircraft, performing two crucial functions: first, to be aerodynamic and, second, to be transparent to the plane’s weather radar. What happens, however, when aircraft radomes don't function correctly? To borrow a phrase that originated in aerospace, "Houston, we have a problem." G Systems recently designed a solution.

5 Considerations for Designing Successful High-Channel-Count Systems

If you are considering performing tests and acquiring data from a complex, large structure, like a space capsule or aircraft, then you will most likely acquire data from a high-channel count system that has hundreds or even thousands of acquisition channels. A solution designed for less than a hundred channels will not just easily scale by simply adding more channels. There are many considerations beyond just adding more channels when designing, testing, and deploying successful high-channel-count systems. Let’s look at five best practices that you will consider during the design phase of the project and take advantage of throughout the life of the test system.
