Astronics Test Systems, has introduced a new radio test solution for use in commercial aerospace, military, and civil security applications. The CTS 6000 Series radio test set incorporates nine test capabilities including antenna testing into a single handheld instrument for testing radio communications systems at the factory, at the depot or in the field.
“Radio communications are the safety net of any security force, and keeping those systems up and running is critical for mission success,” said Brian Price, executive vice president and general manager. “This new system provides intuitive interfaces and synthetic instrumentation to make testing all parts of a radio system, anywhere, much fast, easy and secure.”
“Innovasys Pty Ltd, a test equipment dealer in Australia, selected the CTS-6010 to support field radio maintenance activities for its military customers. The ability to collaborate with the Astronics team, plus this system’s combination of power and portability, made it the clear choice for a radio test set to boost the supportability of communications equipment at the front line,” said Germeen Kaldas, director of Innovasys Pty Ltd.
The system is applicable for use by all branches of the military, airport security, police, fire, private security, airline personnel and other industries requiring secure, reliable radio communications. Users can test tactical handsets, amplifiers, antennae and any other component of a radio system.
