H-3 modeling positioning system undergoing upgrade

Mickey Gipson, left, senior instrumentation, data and controls (ID&C) engineer, and Tabitha Clark, ID&C engineer, run checks April 19 on the operator interface of the model positioning system (MPS) for the H-3 test cell at Arnold Air Force Base. Several elements of the MPS were replaced as part of a planned upgrade, including the control system, position absolute encoders and motors. The upgrade was scheduled for later but a failure in the 15-year-old system required earlier implementation. Changes were made to ensure AEDC's ability to meet customer test requirements.
