Collect PTA and Sensor alignment measurements for LAIRCM installations
C-5 operations at Travis AFB, Calif

ATT Metrology has partnered with DS2 to install the Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures (LAIRCM) for C5B and C5M aircraft. ATT took on the challenge of providing precise PTA and Sensor alignment measurements during install on an aircraft in an unstable environment. To meet this challenge, ATT technicians, engineers and programmers developed specific alignment processes and software programs to combine the multiple hardware technologies needed to achieve reliable and accurate results. ATT’s ability to attain stabilized accuracy on the very large aircraft in an unstable environment enabled DS2 to maintain budget and schedule.
