Smart Weapons. Smarter Test Systems. Successful Missions.
The SmartCan™ is a high-performance, hand-held flightline test set that provides full functionality testing of the MIL-STD-1760 bus via emulation for JDAM, SDB, AMRAAM, etc. The SmartCan™ has been successfully deployed across multiple fighter and trainer aircraft including multiple blocks of the F-16, HAWK, TA/FA-50, F-15, and F-5. In fact, all TA/FA-50 units are equipped with the SmartCan™ as part of their initial delivery support package. The SmartCan™ has also successfully been tested on the A-10 and F/A-18.
"Recently, another country in Asia joined the growing list of customers selecting the SmartCan™ for advanced flightline test. Those who have adopted the solution are very happy with its state-of-the-art armament test capabilities and the reduced risk of post-load mission failure they get with SmartCan™, as compared to their legacy test solutions," said Major General Steve Sargeant, USAF (Ret.), CEO of MTS.
It is also important to note that every Air Force using TA/FA-50s is one step closer to more easily standardizing their hand-held flightline armament test capabilities as the SmartCan™ can be deployed to eliminate the obsolete test equipment found in their fighter units. "The fact that multiple OFPs can be loaded into a single SmartCan™ for use across their flightlines allows them to cost effectively modernize their test capabilities," said Major General Steve Sargeant, USAF (Ret.), CEO of Marvin Test Solutions.
