RTC is pleased to announce that it has won a prestigious grant award under the European Commissions 80 billion Euro Research & Development Program, the "Innovative Union" Horizon 2020 scheme, that is aimed at securing Europes industrial competitiveness globally.

Why is this relevant to producers of aerospace systems, for whom testing solutions impact on and shape a large part of development and operating costs? Well, as an experienced, forward thinking supplier of turn-key test solutions in the aerospace sector, RTC Electronics set out to answer the 2 most difficult questions for end users, who face endless demands for lower risk, more cost effective solutions to their testing needs.

Specifically the 2 key questions are:

1. How to reduce risks and costs in design, implementation, and full life use of testing solutions

2. How to improve predictability, accuracy and deliverability of project programs whilst also shortening time to market.

In answer to these questions, RTC has developed ground breaking technology within an innovative system architecture and applied it to testing solution design and implementation.

RTC are collaborating with end user partners to roll out real life testing solutions, bringing them benefits from this innovation for many years to come.
