The 1,300-square-foot Avionics Lab is utilized by courses in the Avionics Line Maintenance (ALM) minor: AMS 388 Air Transport Systems Line Maintenance Capstone Course, and its’ AMS 384 General Avionics Systems Integration prerequisite class.
These classes are also part of the ALM’s National Center for Aerospace and Transportation Technologies (NCATT) accredited curriculum.
This lab contains and employs equipment for both general aviation and transport category aircraft avionics systems. This includes tooling for integration, installation, and repair of conventional aircraft wiring and fiber optic systems. Further, this lab exposes the students to extensive hands-on experience with not only the industries standard avionic ramp test equipment for navigation, communication, digital standards, and surveillance, but also to the more sophisticated and complex test equipment used for in-depth troubleshooting.
- A standard avionic ramp test equipment for navigation, communication, digital standards, and surveillance
- Complex test equipment used for in-depth troubleshooting such as fiber optics, ADS-B, data bus analysis, time domain reflectometers, and antenna systems analyzers
