Test Fixtures (New) - Trimble

The Trimble Sustainment Engineering Inc. engineering staff has been tasked with supporting the development of replacement systems that, while solving many sustainment issues, present their own challenges. It is not uncommon for a system to use “Modified-COTS” hardware in a manner outside what the original manufacturer intended, requiring the creation of specialized testing solutions. And, with the rapid development schedules required by the government it is also not uncommon for testing and sustainment to become an after-thought to be addressed at some later date. This can lead to stop-gap measures, such as placing an tester or engineer at the bench and performing costly manual procedures, all of which can be done in an automated fashion of some sort.
