5 Mistakes in Aerospace and Defense Test System Design

Aerospace and defense test is a complicated business. A lot goes into ensuring helicopters stay in the air, spacecraft stay pressurized, and passenger airplanes land safely every time. It’s a business full of complex elements—custom test fixtures, multiple technical compliance guidelines, and a ton of customer requirements. After more than two decades of designing hundreds of aerospace and defense test systems at G Systems, we have learned a thing or two about what it takes to design a successful mission-critical system… and seen some key design mistakes that nearly guarantee failure when designing aerospace and defense applications.

Communicating Your Test Requirements

Maximize Your Test System Development: Optimize Your Performance, Reliability and Usability by Starting with Good Requirements

After reading through Ralph Hutson’s blog about whether to make or buy your next test system, you may have decided you want to hire G Systems to design and build your test system. To take that step, you need to provide the test requirements; however, you may not be familiar with how to write requirements.  It's likely that you typically define the test requirements in-house as you design your test system. So, what should you consider when writing your requirements?

Your Next Test System: Make Vs. Buy

How to Make the Decision to Create In-House or Outsource 


Today’s test engineering manager has many challenges. Chief among them is the decision to make the next test automation system internally or contract an outside company for test system development. This single decision influences most of the future decisions regarding each particular test system. And, can even affect the future of the test team at the company.

4 Best Practices for Scalable Test System Development

The most common mistake made in test system development is to focus on the hardware and software while ignoring infrastructure issues such as data storage, deployment, and scalability. Often, problems do not surface until the system has been deployed in production and at that point, fixing them can be very costly and time consuming. For this reason, we will focus on optimizing the production test process.
