Marvin Test Solutions marks 30 years in the test and measurement industry
IRVINE,CA—Marvin Test Solutions, a provider of globally-deployed innovative test solutions for military, aerospace, and manufacturing organizations, is marking its 30th anniversary in the test and measurement industry.
Since its founding in 1988, Marvin Test Solutions’ singular focus has been to Make Test Easy for automated functional test customers by creating innovative solutions with unrivaled long-term support. With three decades of hardware, software and system design expertise, MTS has been at the forefront of the latest technology advances, providing ATE (Automated Test Equipment) hardware, software, and integrated test solutions that combine quality, performance, reduced footprint, and ease of use, while meeting and exceeding the demanding test requirements of today’s complex military, aerospace, and manufacturing applications.
“From the beginning, we believed there was a need for powerful test solutions that were easy to use and provided the performance and quality sought for by customers,” said Loofie Gutterman, President of Marvin Test Solutions and one of the company’s founders. “We could sum up our philosophy in a single phrase that is still true today – We Make Test Easy.”
Originally founded as Geotest, the company designed and manufactured integrated systems while developing its first hardware and software products. Its first software product, the ATEasy test executive and test development suite, was released in 1991.
Early on, Geotest recognized both the emergence of PC-based instruments as the ideal future test platform, and the advantages of a modular approach to designing test solutions. This commitment to industry standard modular design led to early active participation in the PXI Systems Alliance (PXISA), of which Loofie Gutterman is currently the president. By 2004, Geotest’s PXI portfolio exceeded 100 products.
Today, the company’s GENASYS mixed-signal test platform and suite of semiconductor test solutions bring the advantages of the flexible, scalable, PXI architecture to leading-edge test applications for mission-critical, high-value products from sensors to vehicles, aircraft to satellites.
In addition to modular instrumentation products, Geotest developed an expertise in the field of military and aerospace test that today enables the design of the most advanced weapons system test sets on the market, from the field/flightline to the depot.
Acquisition by The Marvin Group in 1997 eventually led to the renaming of the company as Marvin Test Solutions. As a member of The Marvin Group, an award-winning aerospace group with more than 55 years of experience in the defense and commercial aerospace industries, Marvin Test Solutions has test systems deployed worldwide in support of most major military aircraft and munitions in use around the world.
“We’re proud to have achieved this 30-year milestone serving customers worldwide,” said Stephen T. Sargeant, Major General, U.S. Air Force (Ret.), CEO of Marvin Test Solutions, Inc. and VP of Strategic Development for The Marvin Group. “As we look to the next 30 years and the exciting opportunities they will bring, our customers can continue to count on the Marvin Test Solutions team for creative solutions to their test challenges, as well as our unrivaled long-term support that ensures their mission success.”
