Using its 20-plus years of experience in the field, Technology Service Corporation (TSC) is now developing a low-risk Laser Target Board (LTB) system to test airborne laser countermeasures in an operational environment. The system will verify correct laser pointing and sufficient energy on target, and features a high resolution camera to view atmospheric effects on the beam. The initial use of the LTB system will be to test the Navy’s Distributed Aperture Infrared Countermeasures (DAIRCM) system but will also be capable of testing all other airborne and surface-based laser systems. The ultimate goal is to have the LTB system used at open-air ranges across the country for airborne laser countermeasures testing, and testing of long-range, surface-based laser systems.
Advanced High Speed Bus Technologies for Units Under Test (UUT), Test and Evaluation
Technology Service Corporation (TSC) is a high technology company providing engineering consulting and products, electronic components for microwave, digital processing computer software, and automated test & control systems to the U.S. Government and industry. TSC is developing a High-Speed Bus Tester that will utilize IEEE Automatic Test Markup Language (ATML) Std. to incorporate Open Architecture (OA) test capability into DOD standard Automated Test Equipment. Our OA design allows users to modify and expand capabilities as necessary without proprietary restraints. To reduce risk and accelerate development, TSC is leveraging our proven automated test tool, TestForge Test Execute (TE). Initial market is U.S. Navy Depot Sustainment efforts using electronic Consolidated Automated Support System (eCASS); looking for the opportunity to fully develop and mature our TE and interfaces to provide DOD with the OA solution for High Speed Bus testing
Technology Service Corporation’s (TSC) Location, Identification and Flight Tracking System (LIFTS) is a radio frequency (RF) sensor and pseudo-lite system for position, navigation and guidance (PNT) in Global Positioning System (GPS) denied, anti-access area denial (A2AD) and adverse environmental conditions. LIFTS provides a RF sensor solution for the Sea-Based Automated Landing and Recovery System (SALRS), unmanned aerial refueling, and vertical replenishment (VERTREP). TSC’s RF solution provides all-weather, extended range operation with minimal size, weight, power, and cost (SWAP-C). TSC specializes in RF sensor and datalink research, detection solutions, navigation and guidance, communications, command guidance, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), radar, fire control, and electronic warfare. Under internal research and development (IRAD), TSC developed the prototype hardware, matured and demonstrated in this NAVAIR Phase II SBIR.
