I read with great interest your article on COTS test equipment and the accompanying "Who's Who in Test and Measurement" list in your June 2001 issue, and I'm sure your readers found it extremely useful. However, I thought your readers might also be interested to learn about Teradyne's role as a leading supplier of COTS test and measurement solutions to military service branches and contractors within the military and aerospace market.
Our valued customers, such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Mantech, Raytheon, and Honeywell, have relied on Teradyne COTS equipment to ensure the quality of their test procedures for many years. In fact, Teradyne test systems and instruments have contributed vitally to a broad range of Department of Defense programs, including B1-B, B-2, C-17, F-18, F-16, F-15, Comanche, AMRAAM, Patriot, and all major DOD standard test equipment programs (CASS, TETS, IFTE) as well as numerous other weapons and aircraft programs. Furthermore, we are proud to say that among repair depots and suppliers of military electronics, our LASAR digital simulator program is the de facto standard for TPS development.
Like you and your colleagues at Military & Aerospace Electronics, we strive constantly to service the exacting requirements of the Mil/Aero market. Thank you for your efforts in providing companies like Teradyne with a forum through which we may share our message with our customers.
