Teradyne Defence & Aerospace ATEs

Teradyne is the leading supplier of automatic test equipment (ATE) for defense and aerospace electronics manufacturers, depots and intermediate-level facilities. Teradyne’s COTS systems provide the performance and capabilities of full custom solutions but with lower start-up costs, faster test program set (TPS) development, proven TPS migration, less downtime and reduced obsolescence.

Teradyne’s fully integrated functional test systems verify and calibrate the most complex electronics in the defense and aerospace industry. Our systems not only deliver high- performance digital, analog, mixed-signal and serial bus testing, but they’re tough—meeting the demanding environments of military depots and factories and commercial maintenance and overhaul facilities. Teradyne systems support the Department of Defense (DoD) standards through open architecture and flexible platforms, providing a COTS solution that’s configurable to meet any test need.
