RTCA

Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics

MIL standard certifications, i.e. MIL-STD-461 for EMI, MIL-STD-810 for environmental concerns, MIL-STD-704 for power, etc. are typically required of products that will be deployed in various military vehicles, i.e. ships, planes, subs, and land vehicles. However, if you wish to have your product deployed in a civilian aircraft, you will need to be Type Certified (TC’d) or Supplemental Type Certified (STC’d) by the FAA. They use a different set of requirements defined by RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics). While there are many similarities between the tests and limits for environmental concerns and EMI when comparing MIL-STD requirements to RTCA requirements, there are differences as well.

Acumentrics has a product that was well positioned for use in a NATO program because of the light weight and high density power per volume of the ANG1251 series product. The customer in this instance saw the benefit of utilizing the Acumentrics solution, however the program specifically called out the RTCA requirements. Working in partnership with the customer, Acumentrics tested and certified the ANG1251 1U Rugged UPS to the RTCA specifications, allowing this product to be fielded in a quasi-commercial aircraft.

Future programs can now consider Acumentrics and our light weight, compact, reliable, and now RTCA tested ANG1251 series UPS for their commercial aerospace needs.
