|Project Summary||Project Information|
Lockheed Martin Owego designs and produces multi-function displays (MFDs). An MFD is a small screen configured with a mixture of soft keys and touchscreen commands. They are used in aviation to display information to the pilot in numerous configurable ways. Presently, the testing of MFDs is an exhaustive manual task, performed by a human who will eventually tire and thus, suffer a reduction in performance. The Avionics Testing Laboratory Automation System (ATLAS) is a testing device that will be used for screening and interacting with MFDs at Lockheed Martin Owego. The ATLAS system will automate hardware testing and ensure high accuracy and efficiency as well.
A prototype of the device was created by a previous RIT senior design team. Details for this project can be found here. This team will work to improve the pre-existing design and add additional features such as a camera for image recognition capabilities. We will analyze the current prototype to identify deficiencies and develop solutions to make the system smaller, faster and more durable.
The goal of this project is to design and implement a functional prototype of the ATLAS system that can be used in the MFD testing process to allow for decreased human intervention and a more efficient testing process. Additional expected deliverables include a comprehensive project poster and technical paper, as well as all relevant technical documents.
