AD Number: AD0664085

The MTS-2 was developed in response to a demand for a realistically complex, relatively low cost, reliable, substrate on which the tasks associated with electronic maintenance could be performed. It provides the capability for collection of performance data on such tasks as front panel check-out, between and within stage trouble-shooting, alignment, and remove-replace operations, with a minimum of interference with task performance. A time based record of control manipulations, component exchanges, and test point tests is automatically printed. In addition, the device provides a measure of capability for varying such equipment characteristics as front panel layout, type of controls and displays, type of internal circuitry, data flow configuration, etc. Physically, the MTS-2 is composed of six relay racks which contain or support 96 solid-state circuit modules of 20 types, 85 controls and displays of 15 types, and all response sensing and recording equipment.
