An integrated project team approach using systems engineering processes is applied by Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) to solve client issues. Staff members have experience and expertise covering the entire aircraft systems engineering spectrum including

  • Requirements analysis

  • Specification development

  • Preliminary design

  • Detailed design

  • Integration and testing (I&T)

  • Prototyping

We maintain full integration laboratories and test facilities for I&T support. SwRI also has extensive experience in integrating new and replacement line and shop replaceable units (LRU/SRU) on aircraft, as well as developing requirements specification documents and performing trade studies.

SwRI has supported a variety of avionic systems engineering programs

A variety of avionic systems engineering programs can be supported, including:

  • Integration of the situational awareness data link (SADL) system

  • Precision engagement (PE)

  • Global air traffic management (GATM)

  • Enhanced global positioning system

  • Inertial navigation system (EGI)

  • Turbine engine monitoring system

  • Airborne data recorder (TEMS/ADR)

  • Head up display (HUD) on the A-10 aircraft

F-16 Aircraft Support

We have performed numerous avionics and support equipment redesigns for the F-16 aircraft. One recent example is the replacement of a video interface circuit card assembly (CCA) and core memory module in the Expanded Programmable Display Generator (XPDG). This redesign provided significantly improved reliability and maintainability (R&M) of the XPDG, thereby reducing the associated maintenance costs.
