Cobham Avionics and Surveillance business unit selects IntraStage to gain insight into product quality

San Diego, California,

Intrastage Inc. announced today that Cobham Avionics, based in Prescott, Arizona has selected IntraStage to be deployed at their facility.  “Before IntraStage it was difficult for us to retrieve or analyze any of the parametric test data that we generated from our products” says Mike Pomeroy, Test Automation Engineering Manager at Cobham. “And if we did, it took days, if not weeks of manpower to extract anything useful. With IntraStage we now have a whole new capability in real-time to look at that data and take action before issues arise”.

The Prescott site will deploy IntraStage in the next two months at their test facility and quickly expand the footprint as the system gets more widely adopted. “We knew that being a Test Center of Excellence for Cobham Avionics would require moving into technology that is going to give our products and our customers real differentiated value in terms of quality. This is one step moving in that direction”.

Northrop Grumman chooses IntraStage to improve supplier data visibility

Intrastage Inc. announced today that Northrop Grumman will deploy the Intrastage solution at their east coast operations.

Before Intrastage much of their supplier test data took weeks to retrieve, consolidate and perform analysis on to understand how their overall end-product design was performing in production. This meant a lag between product issues emerging and solutions being implemented. Now, by using the powerful capabilities of Intrastage to remotely acquire that data, store it and perform rapid reporting and visualization engineers and managers can more quickly respond and decrease the overall product debug cycle.
