What Is AWTS?
AWTS is an acronym for Automatic Wire Test Set. AWTS is a group of analyzers with set configurations that were designed to meet requirements set by a joint DOD acquisition for deployable common test equipment for the US Air Force, US Navy, and US Marine Corps.
With electrical and electronic systems in everything from aviation to land vehicles becoming increasingly complex, having ruggedized deployable support equipment to maintain these systems has become essential. Further, decreasing budgets have forced maintainers to be more efficient by “doing more with less”. This is why the AWTS family of analyzers have become a valued asset to field level maintainers.
AWTS is a form of Automated Test Equipment that gives maintainers, both at home and deployed, the same capability previously only found in factories and depots. AWTS can perform electrical and electronic system diagnostics reliably and repeatedly in a fraction of the time it takes technicians to perform tests with manual equipment. AWTS quickly identifies and reports faulty conditions to the maintainers, saving time, cost, and increasing overall system reliability. AWTS is also fully programmable and replaces the need for multiple single purpose test sets, which reduces the deployed foot print of required equipment.
