Aero Precision Signs Agreement with WesTest Engineering Corp.
Aero Precision Industries LLC (“Aero Precision”) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with WesTest Engineering Corporation to provide sales support for the WesTest-2000/DATS Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) and Test Program Sets which provide the ability to test 5 LRUs (Line Replaceable Units) and 400+ SRUs (Shop Replaceable Units) from 45 LRUs. Aero Precision provides worldwide support for depot level test, repair and spares for aircraft avionics systems. WesTest-2000/DATS Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) provides the ability to test electronic assemblies and diagnose failures at the SRU level. The WesTest software suite runs on a standard Microsoft Windows operating system.
"WesTest F-16 Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) is already in service with six F-16 users including USAF. We look forward to working with Aero Precision to expand our F-16 Avionics testing and repair capability to more F-16 users world-wide," said Attila Shevket, President of WesTest Engineering.
"International F-16 fleets are aging and FMS channel support is decreasing. F-16 users are looking at many options, one of which includes internal R&OH capability. Aero Precision offers various Depot Level Maintenance (DLM) capabilities to our customers to make them self-sufficient. For that purpose the WesTest - 2000/DATS is the perfect avionics test stand to test over 400 SRUs. The capability that Aero Precision/WesTest DLM provides is not just a test stand but repair training, manuals and spare support as well." said Ertugrul Turhal, Vice President of Technical Support and Business Development for Aero Precision.
