Sensor Flight Testing

Airborne sensors require flight testing to prove that they meet performance requirements. SDL maintains an aircraft test fleet specifically designed to support precision sensor testing and validation. These aircraft can be configured to support various power, processing, and communications requirements, including tactical data links and pilot guidance equipment.
