Test Equipment

J.F. Taylor provides key technical design and integration support across the spectrum of flight Test Assets and Instrumentation. Since 1985, we have maintained resident expertise in designing and developing on-board instrumentation for precise time stamping of test events and post-mission reconstruction of event sequences across multiple aircraft platforms. The test data that we collect is critical for understanding system performance. We have developed standard and fighter-ruggedized Discrete Bus Formatter (DBF) systems for IFF events that record MIL-STD-1553 bus, ARINC bus, and GPS position data during flight test events. J.F. Taylor has designed, fabricated, and maintained the DBF II with hardware and software upgrades.
