Bob Bartol Receives Award for reducing downtime for TFX/F-111 Fighter at Edwards AFB in California

Bob Bartol, the inventor of the Mag-Probe worked as a research support aircraft analyst at Edwards Airforce Base Flight Test Center. Bob was responsible for lowering the TFX/F-111 fighter’s downtime and increase combat readiness from 48 hours to 2 hours between combat missions.

According to the Wall Street Journal the number of available jobs in the United states exceeded the number of job seekers by more than 650,000 in July 2018  in an increasingly tight labor market.

By using a Mag-Probe troubleshooting aid/solenoid valve and relay tester, productivity will increase even when using existing personell and production equipment.

Mag-Probes will dramatically increase the military’s combat ready status by decreasing the downtime between flights or combat missions.

For the Navy the Mag-Probe is waterproof and operates effectively from -80° to +160° F

Increase Combat ReadinessOn aircraft carrier elevators and flight deck, Mag-Probe tests can be conducted on flight decks without using schematics allowing for a quick turn around.

Malfunctions can now be detected in seconds without making contact by detecting the magnetic field.  We all know that once you detect a magnetic field you instantly know you have voltage, current and continuity.  Wires can sometimes be in hard to find places but you cannot hide a magnetic field.

This applies to all Naval ships and will allow them to dramatically reduce their turn around time.

The Mag-Probe also works effectively on Military Aircraft and Army Weapon Systems.

About the Author
Bob Bartol has spent his whole life working with electronics in almost every capacity and spent many hours in Physics classes. He currently holds 4 U.S. patents and has been making a living off one of the patents "The Bartol Mag-Probe" for over twenty years. Bartol Research's Mag-Probe now has a global reach and is dramatically reducing trouble shooting downtime anywhere a solenoid valve. relay, or contactor is used. F111 Air Force Projects - European Flight Competition January 1968 Bob attended electronics school in the Air Force. Upon graduation he was assigned to a fighter wing in Germany. During his assignment he prepared seven aircraft for European competition. The fighter wings aircraft won the competition. Bob then returned to the United States and taught advanced radar for two years. Two years later, he returned to Europe. During this assignment, Air Force headquarters Europe selected Bob to open a Precision Measuring Equipment Laboratory (P.M.E.L) in England. It was the first of its kind in the Air Force. Upon his return to the United States, Air Force headquarters assigned Bob to Air Force research command in Florida. This was strictly a scientific assignment for research and development. After three years he moved from Eglin AFB in Florida to Edwards Air Force Base in California where he had direct contact with the National Bureau of Standards and supported research and development aircraft. During this assignment, he designed a modification for the TF X fighter (F-111). This modification made possible an additional 9800 flying hours per year. The F111 was the first swing wing aircraft in history. General Dynamics completed the modification prior to acceptance by the U.S. Air Force. Modification of F111 Aircraft General Dynamics March 1968 As a result of increasing this flying time Bob Received an award from Edwards Air Force Base for Increasing flying time of the F111 by 9,800 hours per year. The Award was Presented by Colonel Grumbles to TSGT Bob Bartol on June 17, 1968
