WINTEC, Inc. is a small business focused on Defense technology R&D while providing engineering services, systems and software development, and flight test support. WINTEC was founded in 1983 and is involved in many technology areas that include platform/stores integration, weapons systems integration/simulation, Unmanned System (UMS) design and development, avionics software, special test equipment (STE) development, and Modeling & Simulation (M&S). WINTEC’s core capabilities include:
Avionics & Stores Management System (SMS) Development
WINTEC provides avionics and SMS development to include requirements analysis, trade studies, system/subsystem functional definition, integration concept definition, interface requirements development, weapon control algorithm/software development, test planning and procedure development. Key platform development programs that WINTEC has supported include the Multi-Mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA), MQ-9, F-15, F-117, and RAH-66.
Avionics Software Development and Test
WINTEC performs avionics software development for both DoD and commercial aircraft programs to include the Boeing 787, KC-47, and Airbus A380. We support software development of embedded safety critical systems and are well versed in CMMI practices and procedures. WINTEC also provides independent software testing to DO-178B Level A, B, and C measurement standards.
Weapons System Integration
WINTEC has supported numerous weapons systems integration programs to include the Multi-Mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA) stores management system, F-15 Programmable Armament Control System (PACS) software and test set development, and F-15 Suite 5/6 software OFP. In addition, WINTEC personnel are actively involved in the following military and industry standards development for platform/store integration:
- Universal Armament Interface (UAI) and MIL-STD-1760
- Miniature Mission Store Interface (MMSI)
- Interface for Micro Munitions (IMM)
- NATO Air Launched Weapon Integration (ALWI) Study
- NIAG Study for UAS Interoperability
- Emerging fibre-channel and fiber-optic interface technologies
Weapon System Emulation and Special Test Equipment (STE)
WINTEC develops STE supporting avionics and weapon system development, functional qualification, and environmental qualification. For instance, the Multiple Launcher Emulator (MLE) provides a distributed test capability that emulates Hellfire/Longbow M299/M310 Launchers at up to four launcher stations. WINTEC-developed test sets are working in AILs, SILs, and prime contractor facilities across the Nation.
Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) System Development
WINTEC is a leader in the area of UGV and associated system development. We provide direct support to the Air Force Civil Engineering Center (AFCEC). WINTEC develops technologies supporting UMS autonomy and behaviors for navigation and guidance, mobility, sensors, payloads, communications, and mission behaviors.
Modeling & Simulation (M&S)
WINTEC is a leader in the use of M&S for platform/store weapons integration and UMS test and evaluation. We have been involved in research efforts to demonstrate avionics and weapons integration using a Model Driven Architecture (MDA ™) methodology as a means to reduce the overall software life-cycle cost of the weapon system.
