Steve Sargeant is the CEO of Marvin Test Solutions. I recently interviewed him on his take on the current mil/aero test market. Great to get his perspective on this AUTOTESTCON panel. Seems like things are moving in the 'right' direction, albeit slowly.

With so many obsolete and rare to find components used in avionics and military products, even the test system infrastructure is also not updated and standardised to the currently available state of the art technologies.

What ever happened to the concept of synthetic instruments? There was a big push by the military for that. The idea being you use generic instruments such as digitizers and signal sources, then developed the tests and measurements entirely in software.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
