Aerotech News Digital Edition - September 4, 2020

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Sept. 4 edition of Aerotech News and Review! A new testing milestone was achieved at Edwards Air Force Base recently, with the first successful flight of the Common Range Integrated Instrumentation System aboard an F-22 Raptor. This “is a critical enabler, which unlocks many of the tools the experts use to verify the performance of everything from fire control radars, to datalinks, to new or upgraded munitions,” said Lt. Col. David Schmitt, 411th FLTS and F-22 Combined Test Flight Director of Operations. CRIIS is being deployed across multiple aircraft platforms including the F-22 Raptor, F-35 Lightning II, F-15 Eagle, F-16 Fighting Falcon and F/A-18 Super Hornet. The CRIIS is expected to set a new tri-service standard for test range TSPI instrumentation.
