Hardware Success

The Boeing Company contracted with GECO to develop a specification, design, and produce Engineering Test Equipment (ETE). Several years later, Boeing again turned to GECO to upgrade the ETE units with new hardware and software features to support testing of the AH-64 Apache helicopter mission processor and common mission processor. GECO's contributions included:

  • Modifying/adding contacts to J2, J3, J10 and J11 digital video connectors
  • Adding new high-resolution digital video input and output capability (Hotlink DV-II and DV-III formats)
  • Adding new digital video switch and user control GUI
  • Adding analog frame grabber card
  • Adding self-test and loopback capabilities

The GECO products were successfully delivered and play a key role in production acceptance testing of AH-64 Apache helicopters.
