Testing Aerospace and Satellite Applications and Communications Systems

Aukua MGA2510

Ethernet is increasingly being used in the aerospace and satcom markets due to its high scalability, redundancy, lower cost, and open standards based technology. Additionally, recent enhancements from a set of IEEE standards called Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) or with Time-Triggered Ethernet (TTE) from SAE AS6802, further enable Ethernet to be used in time-critical applications where low-latency, security and safety are paramount. And Ethernet is also being successfully leveraged in commercial aviation to enable new higher-bandwidth hungry infotainment services.

Aukua's unique test and troubleshooting capabilities help our customers characterize and optimize the performance and resilience of their safety-critical avionic systems as well as infotainment solutions. Our customers get to market faster with more competitive products, all while reducing risk.

Traffic Generator

Verify throughput performance, accurately measure one-way or two-way latency, or conduct real-time Bit Error Rate (BER) testing to prove system integrity. The traffic generator also has unique support for proprietary protocols, and a powerful PCAP Player.

Network Impairment Emulator

Repeatable and programmable "real-world" testing in the lab insert delay, limit bandwidth, or introduce impairment conditions for negative functional testing, to efficiently reproduce customer found problems, or for realistic performance testing.

Inline Capture and Analyzer

Transparently sit inline between systems under test to capture packets with nanosecond precision timestamps. Monitor traffic in real-time, and gain visibility to quickly troubleshoot hard to find problems. Perform event timing correlation and analysis.
