Airtrans provides International Transportation at the Dallas-Fort Worth Regional Airport. Operational readiness of the vehicles is assured by an automated departure test. The test plan was formulated in the conceptual stages of airtrans design. Main objectives of the plan were to make the vehicles testable using existing operational hardware and with no special test connector. Test design features had the same priority as other vehicle operating requirements. Merging test constraints with prime system operating requirements achieved an efficient and very thorough test. In addition, vehicle checkout features aided verification, production and maintenance testing. The results demonstrate that sufficient priority applied to test objectives, early, provides important contributions to overall system design.
