SAAB aircraft production

Challenge

Swedish aircraft manufacturer SAAB had been using a competitor’s equipment for testing electrical systems on its miliatary aircraft production, for 20 years. But a lack of the ability to continue to upgrade the system, and failing support, led to them asking MK Test to propose an alternative. A demonstration of the MK Test equipment proved conclusive, and SAAB now uses MK Test to test the wiring on all its aircraft production, including the Gripen fighter.
