National Technical Systems performs initial electric power testing on CSeries aircraft

National Technical Systems, Inc., a leading provider of testing and engineering services, announced today that it performed testing on the electric power system for the CSeries aircraft, a new single-aisle jet airliner developed by Canada-based Bombardier Aerospace that is currently in its flight test program. NTS' testing was performed at its Rockford facility where further testing to support formal qualification of the system will be ongoing over the next few months.

The initial contract called for testing on four major electric subsystems, including primary power generation, secondary power distribution, emergency power and auxiliary power. NTS engineers tested the electric systems for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and interference.

NTS President and CEO William C. McGinnis noted that the Company's Rockford facility has been designed to perform a wide variety of electric power testing for a broad range of customers.

"Our Rockford lab is a primary provider of EMC testing for electric power generating systems, especially for aerospace and defense customers, and we have equipped it to be one of most modern EMC/EMI testing facilities in North America," said McGinnis. "The facility's assets include 12 fully automated test chambers with a U.S. Federal Communications Commission-listed chamber, a reverberation chamber, multiple U.S. Department of Defense military-standard chambers and multiple advanced resources for electromagnetic interference (EMI) and EMC testing. We believe the breadth of capabilities in Rockford allowed us to play an important role in the testing of the CSeries aircraft, a very high-profile, new commercial jet for the 100- to 149-seat market segment and an exciting project."
