• Tablet-based Tester Delivers an Intuitive Experience for Field Radio Testing

East Aurora, NY | April 28, 2016– Astronics Corporation (NASDAQ: ATRO), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Astronics Test Systems, is introducing a breakthrough radio test solution for use in commercial aerospace, military, and civil security applications. The new CTS 6000 Series radio test set, which was unveiled at the Army Missions Solution Summit in Atlanta, GA on April 28, 2016, incorporates nine test capabilities into a single tester with an easy-to-use, modern touchscreen interface for testing radio communications systems at the factory, at the depot or in the field.

“Radio communications are the safety net of any security force, and keeping those systems up and running is critical for mission success,” said Brian Price, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Astronics Test Systems. “This new system is the first of its kind in the marketplace and brings radio communications testing into the digital age with intuitive interfaces and synthetic instrumentation to make testing all parts of a radio system, anywhere, much faster, easier and more secure than ever before.”

“Innovasys selected the CTS-6010 to support field radio maintenance activities for its military customers. The ability to collaborate with the Astronics team, plus the Astronics CTS-6000 Series’ unique combination of power and portability, made this the clear choice for a radio test set to boost the supportability of communications equipment at the front line,” said Germeen Kaldas, Director of Innovasys Pty Ltd.
