ARTS 7000 Arrives in Europe!
After a long wait, it’s finally here! Trying to launch a new product during a global pandemic is no easy task, and unfortunately, Laversab is not immune to the problems of such. The global lockdown has affected everything from delaying final verification testing to finally releasing the first test systems.
However, Laversab’s new ARTS 7000 Advanced Radio Test Systems are now being delivered to our launch customers, and it was worth the wait. After nearly five years in development, the ARTS system is finally set to take its place as the aviation industry’s premier solution to the undertaking of all aircraft Radio and Avionics test requirements in a single unit.
In what has to be one of the hottest weeks seen in Europe in nearly a decade, most of the European Sales and Support team for Laversab descended upon Budel in the Netherlands to meet the first box to arrive in Europe.
Laversab is both pleased and proud to be able to welcome Kempen Aircraft Maintenance B.V. as the European Launch Customer for ARTS 7000. The team at Kempen had been extremely hospitable in agreeing to allow the Laversab European team to spend a couple of days working with them.
Kempen has been instrumental in helping Laversab to complete some additional verification testing on a significant number of aircraft and several different types of avionic installations.
The verification testing has proven to be an invaluable resource to Laversab. It has helped to further confirm that the system works across several Avionics platforms whilst also enabling the team to assess some required tweaks to the system software to improve upon the user experience.
The Team at Kempen also took delivery earlier this year of one of Laversab’s 6250 Air Data Testers, and whilst patiently waiting for the ARTS 7000 units to arrive, have become extremely competent users of the ADTS. Part of the attraction of ARTS will be the ability to be able to control both test sets from one Ipad controller whilst sat in the cockpit. This fact helping to reduce the Manhours required on the task.
Having completed a significant number of tests across several platforms the team took the opportunity to undertake system training for all of the European Sales Team ready to be able to demonstrate ARTS 7000 to customers across Europe as part of the product launch.
Laversab is incredibly grateful to Kempen Aircraft Maintenance B.V. for their patience and hospitality. The facilities in Budel are absolutely first class as is the welcome from Ruud, Coert, Jan and the team there.
As our European Launch Customer, Kempen Aircraft Maintenance B.V. will help Laversab to complete verification testing and provide technical feedback across many several avionics platforms as we release new updates. They will also help us to evaluate and test planned new hardware and software modules designed to expand upon the systems existing capabilities.
We look forward to working with the Kempen Team as we continue to develop and expand upon the ARTS systems capabilities.
