Abstract : This TOP establishes procedures and provides guidance for the functional testing of aircraft instruments and for the testing of the logistics support system required to return aircraft instruments to proper functioning condition after failure. Aircraft instruments include basic flight and aircraft systems performance/health indicators. Functional testing implies the test item is properly installed in the appropriate aircraft and evaluated throughout the operational range of the aircraft mission scenario. The primary objectives of this TOP are: (a) To determine if the designated aircraft instrument performs its intended function in accordance with the requirements presented in the applicable approved documents; Letter Requirement (LR), Letter of Agreement (LOA), Required Operational Characteristics (ROC), Materiel Needs (MN), etc., as reflected through the TECOM Test Directive; (b) To evaluate the human factors engineering (HFE) functional characteristics; and (c) To evaluate the installation and operational compatibility of the designated aircraft instrument with the aircraft interface, other instruments, and aircraft systems.
