MC100M MCBRAT Test System

Description

The Munitions Capable BRAT (MCBRAT) tests smart weapons systems. It initiates Built-In-Test (BIT), provides BIT status, and uploads/downloads and verifies applicable software, including mission planning data resident in the smart weapon. MCBRAT is designed for operation in harsh flight line environments.

MCBRAT conforms to MIL-STD-1760 Class II interface and links with the weapon via a common MIL-STD-1760 connector. MCBRAT consists of:

  • A ruggedized and self-contained laptop computer controller
  • Serial RS-232 Communications
  • Serial RS-422 Communications
  • MIL-STD-1553 Interface
  • PCMCIA Interface (external accessible)
  • Test Adapter Unit (TAU)
  • MIL-STD-1760 Class II Port
  • Self Test Wraparound Port
  • Interconnecting cables, transit cases

MCBRAT is compatible with:

Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW), Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser (WCMD), Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM), Standoff Land Attack Missile Expanded Response (SLAM-ER), Hard Target Smart Fuze (HTSF), Miniature Air Launched Decoy (MALD), Paveway, AGM-142, AIM-9X missile, and the gamut of rail launchers and bomb rack units supporting these munitions.

State-of-the-Art Technology

The MCBRAT features VXI instrument-on-a-card, sub-module instrument-on-a-card, and modular technologies to provide complex testing capabilities for munitions and flight line requirements.

High Speed Dynamic Digital Option

Up to 192 pins I/O configured for mixed logic families to frequencies less than or equal to 50 MHz.

DC and AC Power Supplies and Electronic Loads

The power system is a reconfigurable precision power subsystem designed to meet the challenges of high tech ATE.

Operating Environment

Supports flight line requirements.

Multiple Instrument Synchronization

Complete access at the interface of all instrument "trigger" signals allows multiple instrument synchronizations, or "event" testing. This technique can reduce the software overhead for a test and increase throughput.

Measurement Capability to 200 MHz

Instrument measurement capability in the standard configuration is to 200 MHz.

Computer

Intel-Based PC (custom configurations available as options)

Test Languages

TBASIC Test Language (options available)
