Avionic testing plays a huge role in our company and is something we take very serious because if a part is not tested then we do not sell it.  Recently Lockheed Martin Corp. decided to begin assisting the Navy with advance combat avionics test equipment under terms of a $166 million 4-year contract. One of the first task that the Navy gave to the company of Lockheed was to build 36 electronic Consolidated Automated Support System full-rate initial production units.
