Cobham Announces Mission Test System

The Industry’s First Go/No-Go Test System for the Actual End User

ORLANDO, Florida—International Wireless Communications Expo 2018—March 07, 2018—Cobham announced the launch their newest product for the Land Mobile Radio market, the Mission Test System. The system provides end users with a very quick automated test for their radio – ensuring that in critical situations – their radio will operate as expected.

The Mission Test System combines the 8800SX Digital Radio Test set with an RF shield case to ensure radio frequency interference is not an issue during the test. The System also comes loaded with the radio’s specific Auto-Test application. The end user just needs to hook the radio up, close the case lid and push a button. Within 60 seconds, or less, the 8800SX will register a “Pass” or “Fail”.

“Cobham AvComm is pleased to provide our actual radio end users the opportunity to check their radio’s mission readiness prior to actually using them in the field,” said Lyndon Zielke, Sr Product Marketing Engineer. “The Mission Test System is a very easy to use go/no-go test system. It allows our Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Emergency Medical Personnel or anyone who carries a two-way radio to do a very quick operational check on the radio before they start their shift so they know their radio will work when they need it.”

The Cobham 8800SX comes with the industry’s largest touch-screen and our Auto-Test Applications are the gold standard with a proven track record for speed, accuracy and reliability. The Mission Test System allows AvComm to take their applications one step further, and provide the actual end users of the radio a very quick sanity check that their radio is operational prior to their mission that day.
