Large Aircraft Infrared Counter Measure – (LAIRCM)

Boeing Kelly Air Force Base San Antonio, Texas

Precisely measure the exact relative locations of the LAIRCM Sensor and SLTA components
Farnborough Airshow 2010 - C17 Cargo Bay

ATT Metrology was contracted by Boeing to measure the LAIRCM Sensor and SLTA locations on 40+ C-17 Aircraft. The task required the utilization of a combination of both Laser Tracker and Digital Photogrammetry to achieve the highest accuracy.

ATT developed techniques which allowed the measurement process to occur outside on the tarmac in relatively extreme conditions. Often temperatures were 100+ degrees F. with winds exceeding 20 knots. Even in these hostile conditions ATT Personnel have been able to meet the customer’s accuracy expectations.
