The design, development, manufacture, and integration of Automated Test Equipment (ATE) systems is a core technology focus for FES. Our engineers have designed and manufactured flight line test systems for military aircraft such as the F-15, F-18, C-17, B-1, B-52 and V-22 aircraft.
Frontier's Common Core Test Set was used to test space systems electronics for the Defense Support Program (DSP). This open-architecture, high-reliability electronics test set has been upgraded over the last 25 years with new hardware and graphics-based software to accommodate the complex testing requirements associated with space flight electronics.
Maritime ATE systems designed and manufactured by FES include Radar & Video Distribution factory test systems supporting US and Canadian Navy customer production requirements.
Core components of FES-developed ATE systems include the use of PXI/PCI/VXI/VME technologies, National Instruments Test Stand software, Agilent Technologies instrumentation, and Virginia Panel interface hardware. FES is responsible for all aspects of design from systems requirements analysis through verification and validation of ATE compliance with customer hardware, software, and documentation requirements.
Frontier Electronic Systems is the supplier of choice for the collaborative development, production, and integration of Closed-Loop Simulation (CLS) Systems for Northrop Grumman's Global Hawk and Triton UAV programs and has been since their inception. The innovative technology integrated into these programs process thousands of signals and has ensured that RQ-4A, RQ-4B, and MQ-4C UAVs are 100% mission ready prior to air operations.
