AMETEK MRO Muirhead Avionics Introduces the SDR-OMNI All-in-One Avionics Flight Line Test Set

Muirhead Avionics, a brand of AMETEK MRO and one of the largest independent avionics repair facilities in Europe (excluding Spain & Portugal), has secured exclusive distribution rights for the SDR-OMNI All-in-One Avionics Flight Test Set in Europe.

Manufactured by Tel Instruments (TIC), the SDR-OMNI Flight Line Test Set provides avionics technicians with a comprehensive suite of radio frequency (RF) avionics test capability in a single rugged, yet lightweight, package for demanding commercial and military customers. Professionally formatted reports can be downloaded via USB or wirelessly printed to a local wireless printer. 

This is the most advanced commercial flight line test set ever made. The combination of hardware and software can test virtually any RF signal from 200 kHz to 2.0 GHz. Test functions are implemented using software-defined signal processes that generate, receive, and measure complex avionics signals covering narrow band analog or digital communications, intricate navigation, and wide-band pulse or data protocols. 

“This device will be a game changer for avionics testing,” comments Steve Wells, Managing Director and Divisional Vice President at Muirhead Avionics. “At Muirhead, we endeavour to deliver the latest technologies to our customers, and this test set fits into our portfolio perfectly, offering unmatched capability and ease of use. This is the first RF test set that is completely software defined – technicians simply need to specify the avionics test app, or combination of apps they would like to use. It is also the lightest test set in the market at only 4.2 pounds. Additionally, its large 7-inch colour display with responsive touchscreen means the SDR-OMNI is designed with the specialised demands of commercial and military customers in mind.”
