Wide Use of Navy's New Test System Seen
Washington-Recent industry briefings on the Navy’s new Versatile Avionics Shop Test (VAST) system, whose introduction will have a major influence on all future naval avionics systems, attracted more than 1,200 representatives from over 200 avionic and airframe companies. The briefings were sponsored by the Naval Air Systems Command and Electronic Industries Assn. All new Navy avionic systems must be designed so that VAST can be used to test and trouble-shoot automatically a system, its major assemblies and the individual plug-in modules within each assembly (AW&ST Aug. 2, 1965, p. 87).
