Validation Test Plan for the Digital Time Division Command/Response Multiplex Data Bus Remote Terminals


This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) contains a sample test plan for AS 15531 or MIL-STD-1553B Remote Terminals (RT) that may serve several different purposes. This document is intended to be contractually binding when specifically called out in a specification, Statement of Work (SOW), or when required by a Data Item Description (DID). Any and all contractor changes, alterations, or testing deviations to this section shall be separately listed for easy review.

The purpose of these tests is to verify that the Unit Under Test (UUT) responds properly in accordance with the requirements of the governing standard. The tests are not intended to verify the mission aspects stated in the equipment specification.

The pass criteria is defined in each test paragraph. If any test fails, record the UUT response to that test.

This general test plan is intended for design verification of remote terminals designed to meet the requirements of AS 15531 and MIL-STD-1553B with Notice 2. Appendix A, B, and C provide cross references among this test plan, AS 15531, and MIL-STD-1553B. For those remote terminals not required to meet Notice 2, Appendix D and E list the changes in this test plan for MIL-STD-1553B only and MIL-STD-1553B, Notice 1. The test plan requirements apply to the terminal under test, when invoked in a specification or statement of work.

When invoked in a specification or statement of work, these requirements apply to the remote terminal and associated equipment which is developed either alone or as a portion of a system or subsystem development. The contractor is responsible for invoking all the applicable requirements of this document on any and all subcontractors he/she may employ.


This document has been determined to contain basic and stable technology which is not dynamic in nature.
