As of 2019, ARC has been in business for over 20 years, delivery test solutions, manufacturing productivity solutions and system sustainment options to a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies and government institutions. Over the past 20 years, we have accomplished many things, like supporting the FAA, to keep the National Air System (NAS) up-and-running with our innovative technical solutions for obsolescence. We have helped our military with equipment to sustain and test the critical components the armed forces need to keep our troops safe. We have supported defense prime contractors in equipment for electronic warfare test solutions, missile defense and sub assembly and RF module testing. We have assisted some of the largest companies in medical, automotive, trucking and aviation with our innovation in manufacturing and test. We have built sophisticated error proofing and highly complex tooling solutions that keep transportation moving. Now we are working on the latest in Augmented Reality technologies for test and manufacturing.

Here are some of the products adn solution areas you will see from ARC:

  • PVS - innovative technologise for torque tooling with smart torque tools, general purpose error proofing and now with augmented reality (See PVS AR)
  • MSAT - This is our mixed signal automated test platform used for a wide variety of functional testing purposes
  • DSX - This is both a test and sustainment technology. See how we've used this platform to retrofit a radar system using the latest in FPGA technology.

  • PVS AR (Process Verification System for AR)
    PVS AR – Allows your smart Torque and assembly tool to work within Augmented Reality Applications for error proofing your critical assembly tasks....

  • PVS AR – Allows your Torque tool to Work within Augmented Reality Applications

    Connected to our standard, open PVS (Process Verification System) platform, the new early adopter PVS AR system, allows users to do several things, not yet seen in the industry.  First, by connecting to a wide variety of standard torque tools, standard PVS connectivity allows customer choice to pick the right tool for the right job, but now allows these tools to be used in an augmented reality framework.

    With PVS AR, connecting to PVS to an Augmented Reality headset is easily accomplished through our PVS AR Manager API (Available in Unity/C#). Also we have connectivity to spatial and tool position data, that allows the user to see, in an augmented overlay, live completed fastener torque data readings as the the fastening steps are being completed.

    Currently ARC has a PVS AR early adopter system, that can be purchased for evaluation. We can connect to your tool or our PVS Demo Kit (with included smart tool) to demonstrate how this setup works.

    What does the PVS AR early adopter kit come with?

    • PVS AR hardware (requires a standard PVS)
      • If customer already has the PVS platform, the PVS AR system is all that is needed!
    • PVS AR Manager DLL – Built with Unity and C#, allows for your own authoring environment
      • PVS AR Manager; Licensed to PVS AR hardware
      • ARC can work with your Augmented Reality service company / integrator on training
    • HoloLens sample application
      • Our first early adopter package comes with HoloLens support
      • Provide your own HoloLens or lease the HoloLens from ARC
      • Note: Other AR headsets and/or tablets can be supported (*contact ARC for details)
  • DSX - Digital System X (FPGA Sustainment Platform)
    DSX – A Product with Many Digital Personalities. DSX is both a digital prototyping and test platform built together with flexibility in mind....

  • We have developed this technology, not only for our customers, but for our own unique needs in the areas of prototyping and test.  We found that many of the standard digital prototyping boards (FPGAs, PLDs, etc…) that are available on the market, did not have the flexibility or the base architecture to provide the prototyping capabilities we need in developing our own solutions.

    As a case in point, on a recent radar display system, the device components to take in a radar signal, digitize and process those signals, needed high speed processing and some customization of the inbound signals, not to mention a high speed read out to a processor card.  Using the DSX architecture that we’ve developed as a baseline, the ARC engineering team was able to rapidly develop, at a lower cost than with traditional COTS devices, the necessary architecture to quickly build the radar display into a complete system, thus replacing an outdated architecture that consisted of multiple CCAs and obsolete components.

    High Speed Test

    Simply put, DSX is also a high speed test platform. Because many of our solutions require test, or test solutions as a main requirement, having a flexible architecture to implement high speed testing (such as stimulus-response testing, loop back, custom protocols, etc…) is a necessity in many of the systems we work on.

    Therefore, DSX is built with default firmware that gives it a High Speed Test (HST) functionality, or personality. For example, in our standard MSAT platform, the DSX architecture (comes with 4x 96 lines = 384 high speed digital test lines!) and is the core unit for our high speed digital test interfaces.
