World Micro Selects Textron Systems Model 527 Radar Signal Simulator for KC-46 Platform

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Nov 30, 2015) - Georgia-based distributor, World Micro, announced today that it has been selected for procurement of the Textron Systems Electronic Systems Model 527™ Radar Signal Simulator for the KC-46 Platform.

The Model 527 is designed for end-of-runway and walk-around preflight testing, to determine the operational status of installed electronic warfare (EW) radar warning receiver (RWR) systems. Both operational readiness and threat recognition are verified across antennas, transmission lines, radomes, cockpit displays and controls. Textron Systems' advanced threat modeling software allows a variety of threat simulations including simple, continuous-wave, pulsed single emitters, and multiplexed radio frequency emitters modeling several threats simultaneously. Once the threat profiles have been installed in the test set, personnel can progress through them easily on the flight line with a thumb switch, verifying aircraft operation.

This is another new application for the Model 527 establishing it as a preferred test set for modern platforms.

"On behalf of our diverse roster of aerospace customers, the Textron Systems' Model 527 Hand Held Radar Simulator has been selected for this new application," stated World Micro CEO Dan Ellsworth.

"We offer a proven system that can be used across multiple advanced platforms," Senior Vice President and General Manager Steve Mensh said. "The Model 527's power enables testing at stand-off range for large aircraft. The product's capability and ease of use is why our customer base continues to expand. We are pleased to have been selected to provide this vital preflight tester for the KC-46."
