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.
