Alto Aviation expands research and development facility in Florida

Audio system specialist Alto Aviation has expanded its research and development facility in Florida, USA, by 50%. The space has been added to support the growth of Alto’s research and new product development departments. The facility now houses an improved testing lab, further supporting in-house DO-160 testing and TSO certification testing. An aircraft cabin mock-up is in place for advanced acoustic research. The facility will also house an electrical RF screen room to be used for EMC evaluation and certification testing on new product designs.

Alto has also appointed its current vice president of engineering, Steve Scarlata, to also serve as vice president of research and development. “I am thrilled at Alto’s commitment toward expanding our high-end cabin audio offering by continued investment in research and new product development,” said Scarlata. “It is exciting to be managing our growing research division and I look forward to my role in bringing new technologies to market.”
