Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).
Partech Systems has successfully delivered Test Program Sets (TPS) to support the consortium headed by Lockheed Martin Corporation (USA) in the development of the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). TPS hardware and software were delivered to Northrop Grumman Mission Systems of San Diego (NG), who are currently upgrading these TPSs to accommodate the requirements of production version designs.
The TPSs were hosted on the Lockheed Martin LM-Star Automated Test Equipment (ATE) and developed in accordance with Lockheed Martin TPS Development Style Guide and Partech Systems TPS development procedures.
Partech’s ´JSET´ quality software tools were utilised during TPS software development to ensure adequate fault coverage was achieved.
Working together with the NG design team, Partech developed the Test Requirements to define all test software and hardware required for the TPS development life-cycle.
Partech designed and built the specialised interface device to the LM Star ATE. Partech designed all of the test software which included diagnostic routines to functional group level. Partech also implemented Acculogic JTAG routines that gave the ability to diagnose faults to node level for much of the UUT circuitry. Partech also developed routines to program UUT software (test software and OFP) over Ethernet and JTAG bus.
Partech’s engineers have developed skills and knowledges working on the F-35 that make them highly knowledgeable of the processes and quality standards required for production and sustainment.
