Test Engineering Insights for Aerospace and Defense

You are evaluated on your ability to manage cost and risk, whether you’re working on your next program bid or serving as a portfolio manager for software engineers to support legacy testers. Explore best practices to manage business risk and ultimately create a sustainable market advantage by improving test engineering and operational support.

A Note to Aerospace and Defense Test Leaders

Whether you’re putting pencil to paper for your next program bid, assessing the mass-migration costs to move your teams and testers to Windows 10, or portfolio-managing software engineers to support a growing inventory of legacy testers, you are consistently evaluated on your ability to manage cost and risk. You are not alone. Aerospace and defense organizations across the world are being asked to learn and integrate new RF and wireless technologies, manage new and often unbudgeted corporate or government mandates, and maintain legacy test equipment for years longer than originally planned. NI has served the aerospace and defense industry for decades with disruptive, PXI-based instrumentation and application software that reduce the overall cost and risk associated with the design, validation, test, and support of your products. In these articles, we’ll share some of the insights and best practices we’ve identified working with thousands of engineers and leadership teams to manage risk and ultimately generate a sustainable market advantage for you through advancements in test engineering and operational support.
