Who is Astronics Test System's biggest customer? Article doesn't say.

It has to be Apple. They did no business with Apple until they bought the EADS business from Airbus at the beginning of 2014. The EADS business in Irvine became their Test business, taking over from (and swallowing) the struggling existing unit in Florida.

So here's a guess about the product: something to do with either heads up display (HUD) -- http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/head-up-disp... -- where Apple has an older product but is rumored to be working on an electronic car, or electronic flight bags (EFB) where Apple already has a presence.
