Abstract:

The goal of this task was to upgrade and enhance the existing 390 testers at Kelly AFB to expand system life expectancy to ensure maintainability and supportability. This was accomplished by replacing existing processors with state-of-the-art commercial off-the-shelf COTS Pentium processors and providing software upgrades to maintain system operational capability with the existing Test Program Sets TPSs. The IE 390 upgraded test stations now have a common hardware configuration and use the same version of software. System training and demonstrations were provided to familiarize Air Force engineers with the operation and capability of the upgraded systems. The open architecture of the upgraded 390 hardware and software also allows easier future COTS upgrades.
