Flight Test Switches

Rugged Ethernet switches designed for the harshest aerospace environments

Our compact, deterministic flight test switches have been qualified to reliably deliver high-speed, real-time data with a wide temperature operation ranging from -40 to 85°C. Their rapid boot-up capability minimizes data loss from power outages, while their flexible forwarding and filtering configurations can send what is required to multiple destinations for real-time monitoring, recording, and transmission. Our selection of flight test switches includes support for IEEE-1588 PTP, embedded v1 and v2 Grandmaster support and translation, and GPS and digital IRIG-B input and output. We also offer additional hardware to translate between PCM/CAIS and Ethernet to help protect existing hardware investment and have participated in the TmNS program by developing leading-edge technology for complete network monitoring and control.
