Abstract : One of the major responsibilities of the Systems Engineering Avionics facility (SEAFAC) is to act as the Air Force Office of Primary Responsibility (OPR) for MIL-STD-1553 applications. Since its inception in 1974, this organization played a vital role in promoting and enforcing the standard. In the area testing, SEAFAC set the pace by developing the Test Plan and specialized test equipment. Our advanced validation Test Facility allows us to test a wide variety of MIL-STD-1553B interfaces, such as Remote Terminals, transceivers and, of particular interest, the Large Scale Integrated circuit chips, to ensure their conformity to MIL-STD-1553B. This paper outlines our present validation testing as well as planned automation of our testfacility. A summary of our experiences is presented. The paper concludes with SEAFAC's role in future testing. (Author)
