What Does It Take to Rewire an F-15 Fighter Aircraft?

Posted by John Ashour on Nov 3, 2014 10:24:00 PM

Rewiring an aircraft is a very challenging task. Rewiring a fighter jet is even more challenging than other military aircraft because of the limited space and the fact that almost all of the equipment (i.e. Line Replaceable Units or LRUs) need to be removed to get to the wiring harness bundles.

Posted by John Ashour on Aug 13, 2014 8:18:00 AM

The F-16 contains many multiplex or mux panels. Mux panels contain multiplex transformers that are either enclosed in a sheet metal box or are mounted to a sheet metal plate.

Similar to any aircraft part, there comes a time when mux panels should be repaired or replaced.
