Test set selected to support Thai Air Force

As part of the support package for a group of T-50TH aircraft purchased by the Thai Air Force in 2015, Marvin Test Solutions’ MTS-209 Common Armament Test Set has been selected by Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) and slated for delivery in the next 24 months. The new aircraft will replace ageing L-39 Albatros trainers.

The T-50 'Golden Eagle' was jointly developed by KAI and Lockheed Martin as a multi-role trainer and has several variants, including a light combat aircraft, capable of supersonic speeds.

The MTS-209 (also referred to as the Stores Suspension Unit Tester, or SSUT) is a portable test set for various armament systems used on the F-16, F-15, F-18, T-50, TA-50, FA-50, Hawk and additional aircraft, supporting a wide range of Alternate Mission Equipment (AME) including missile launchers, aircraft pylons, and bomb racks. Based on the proven MTS-207 Rugged Field Test, the MTS-209 combines the test capabilities of an I-Level (backshop) test set in a compact, rugged, flightline-qualified enclosure. The test set’s modular design simplifies logistics, and its flexible, scalable PXI architecture enables future upgradeability to match evolving test requirements.
