The Navy PATE (Propulsion Automatic Test Equipment) program was initiated in 1977 in an attempt to control the development, procurement, and implementation of computerized test equipment for testing Navy aircraft gas turbine engines and engine components. Software tools have been developed to enhance standardization of the use of the ATLAS language for engine test programs. The hardware systems delivered to fleet activities are all based on the Digital Equipment Corporation PDP 11/34 minicomputer. The philosophy utilized has been to add computer-based data acquisition systems as redundant systems to existing test cells. This paper describes the systems deployed to the fleet, the operating capabilities of these systems and the experience gained. Projections for potential applications of current and planned systems are also included.
