Abstract:

AITEST is a real life expert system designed to serve as a decision aid and productivity tool for test engineers and technicians. Oriented for the functional level, AITEST is designed to troubleshoot large scale UUTs Unit Under Test that contain analog, digital and mechanical modules in electronic, electro optic, hydraulic or mechanical systems and devices. This paper describes a typical application of AITEST in an intermediate - level maintenance facility. The UUT Unit Under Test discussed in this application note is a Radar Modulator RM embedded in the Radar System of a military aircraft. Following a brief description of the Radar Modulator structure and functions and its current test tools, we proceed to describing our experience in using AITEST to troubleshoot this device.
