IAMT: Basic and Advanced Training


Integrated avionic systems maintenance fault diagnostic procedures for:

  • Operation of aircraft controls and systems required to support avionics maintenance
  • Repair of integrated avionics systems by replacement of LRUs
  • Use of aircraft publications
  • Use of aircraft documentation
  • Compliance with safety requirements including:
    • Armed aircraft
    • Canopy opening/closing procedures
    • Cockpit switches/controls and tell-tale devices
    • Egress systems
    • Electrical power supplies
    • Electrostatic hazards (earthing and bonding)
    • Hydraulic pressure
    • Lasers
    • Movable surfaces and sharp edges
    • Noise hazards
    • Radars

The emulation of the aircraft systems, sensors and equipment will provide generically realistic responses to operator inputs in real time responding appropriately to student inputs.

The IAMT will support the following training objectives:

  • Development of Understanding and familiarization with aircraft systems
  • Interaction with aircraft systems
  • Troubleshooting / fault diagnosis of aircraft systems
  • Understanding, familiarization and use of ground support and test equipment
  • Understanding, familiarization and use of safety devices (e.g. canopy and ejection seat safety pins)
  • Functional testing of normal and malfunctioning aircraft systems
  • Working with aircraft systems in a safe manner
  • First line maintenance of avionics systems
  • Basic and advanced fault identification and rectification down to LRU level
  • Cockpit access safety procedures

IAMT provides the student the capability to:

  • Learn the function and operation of the system
  • Locate the system and its components in the generic aircraft
  • Perform operational checks and adjustments
  • Perform troubleshooting
  • Properly use appropriate representative ground support and test equipment

Line replaceable units (LRUs) (hardware for IAMTs and virtual for ASEs) will be replaceable after the faulty system has been diagnosed.
