Since the late 80’s, ETC has been performing EMI/EMC qualification tests and measurements on equipment ranging from the smallest black box to full-size aircraft.
ETC has performed aircraft-level testing on over fifty planes belonging to the majority of Canadian airlines.
Testing for systems for even higher altitudes has included work on the Sapphire Satellite subsystem - Canada's first military satellite, and a Laser Camera system that flew onboard Space Shuttle Discovery during NASA’s ‘Return to Flight’ mission, and the Cygnus spacecraft CRS Orbital-3 subsystem.
ETC’s Aerospace experience includes:
- Emissions & Susceptibility testing
- HIRF testing and certification up to Category G
- RTCA DO-160 Section 22 Lightning testing up to and greater than Level 5
- Lightning development and research testing for engine systems and airframes
- HIRF and Lightning development testing for the C-Series Fuselage and center wing box sections
- Cable harness shielding effectiveness and transfer impedance measurements
- T-PEDs (Transmitting Portable Electronic Devices) testing and engineering on rotary and fixed wing aircraft
- PEDs (Portable Electronic Device tolerance) IPL testing and engineering on rotary and fixed wing aircraft
Transport Canada accepts the Electronic Test Centre’s test reports in aid of propulsion system qualification for itself, and on behalf of FAA and EASA.
