T2 is developing a critical downlink antenna pointing control module for limited time use in a lunar environment. The architecture is based on two stepper motors each matched with two resolvers on each axis, for a total of four resolvers. The ACU will also control two heaters for the motors, capture temperature readings at the motors and on the ACU board, drive a Hold Down and Release Mechanism (HDRM), and control the position of a waveguide switch.
T2 developed a prototype beacon module that will allow a test environment for a lunar positioning and navigation system algorithm development.
Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) development kits and enclosures were developed with minimal modifications.
T2 Engineering experts developed a break out card (BOC) for the US Government to support the Nuclear Cross Check Analysis (NSCCA) and access the internal signals of the message processor drawer. Our engineers applied their electrical and systems engineering skills to save the government time and money by producing a quality design with a quick turn-around.
T2 Engineering played an integral role in testing the newly-developed Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) Telemetry Integrated Processing System (ITIPS). ITIPS provides real-time status during test flights of the Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) Telemetry, which provides the ground crew with crucial data on how the missile is behaving.
Hill Air Force Base currently uses the A-10 Warthog On-Aircraft Test System (OATS) to test weapon functionality and other aircraft systems in conjunction with software upgrades. OATS is typically used with a wingless A-10, but it can be used on any A-10. T2 Engineering contributed to the breakout box design, system design, system deployment support, 30MM cannon simulator, and custom tools used to verify wiring in the A-10. With our support, the Air Force completed OATS on time and within budget.
T2 Engineering played an integral role in upgrading the Ground Terrain Radar Replacement, Mission Control Computer, and systems documentation by providing critical code reviews and support in verifying functionality for the government customer. Our experience in embedded systems programming using a VxWorks operating system was heavily utilized and invaluable to this project.
Our T2 engineers worked on the replacement of the Electronic Fire Control Computer (EFCC) with the Commercial Fire Control Computer (CFCC). We were responsible for the migration of the Software Capability Upgrade (SCU) 7 to the new hardware and developed additional software to control the weapon-launching function and traffic utilization.
We also have a wealth of experience creating custom-made VB Macros. These have been shown to be extremely useful for taking long, laborious tasks that need to be done on a regular basis and simplifying them down to a few clicks of a mouse—saving you both time and money.
