ADEPT Test Automation Workstations are designed to aid technical personnel in the maintenance, alignment, calibration and error diagnosis of complex electronic systems. Through the structured collection and analysis of test point measurements on an Equipment Under Test (EUT), ADEPT:
ADEPT eliminates the need for traditional manuals, paper documentation and discrete test equipment and eases the burden on system maintainers by integrating the required test equipment functionality and automating the testing process. All necessary documentation is stored within ADEPT and presented to the user in a familiar format. When an instruction in a test procedure calls for the use of a specific embedded test instrument, ADEPT opens the instrument control and display window and sets up the instrument for optimal test point measurement. A “known good” reference is presented to the user along with a pass/fail indication. All operations and measurements are stored for after-action analysis, off-line training, and prognostics analysis for proactive remediation of potential error/out of-tolerance conditions. ADEPT also features Distance Support capabilities, so that local technicians can benefit from interactive assistance by remote experts in real time.
ADEPT’s open architecture is designed to allow easy integration of various documentation types, and currently supports HTML documents as well as the military’s Planned Maintenance System (PMS) and Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM). The test equipment interface is easily extensible to virtually any PXI or USB- connected device. The underlying database is designed for easy consolidation of an unlimited number of standalone ADEPT units. All of these technologies combine to make an extremely flexible platform that can be tailored to your specific needs.
ADEPT was initially developed under the Navy’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to streamline maintenance and troubleshooting on the AN/SPY-1 family of phased array radars. ADEPT systems have been deployed on Aegis CG and DDG platforms to support the SPY-1. However, since the system uses commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) instrumentation modules, ADEPT variants can be used to support both preventive maintenance (PMS) and condition-based maintenance (CBM) of other radars and complex electronic systems in military or commercial applications.
