Around the world, wherever engineers are working on aircraft and space vehicles, dSPACE is involved in the entire development process for electronic control systems from start to finish. Hardware and software from dSPACE play a vital role in giving aerospace engineers the required tools to set up high-performance development environments and test benches. Whether it is function development via rapid control prototyping, code generation, software-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop testing, or system integration on test benches – dSPACE has the solution you need. Typical use cases range from controllers for electric or hybrid propulsion, flight control, more electric aircraft systems, satellites, or launch vehicles – to name just a few.
Realistic Testing of Flight Scenarios in the Lab
dSPACE products make it easy to seamlessly integrate simulation models, so you can execute unit or system testing earlier in the development process with the support of a comprehensive workflow and easy test system configuration. Therefore, even critical flight scenarios are fully reproducible in a safe laboratory environment on the ground. The flexible and scalable test environment enables detailed and fully automated tests at every development stage in almost all conceivable flight situations.
Automated Tests with Scalable Equipment
Moreover, test systems from dSPACE also support advanced use cases that require the real-time simulation of multiple systems interacting with real parts of the device under test. The closed-loop environment provides an effective verification platform for embedded software as well as integrated systems. This approach allows for performing efficient and automated integration tests 24 hours a day. In addition, the open and expandable architecture enables scalability from large to small setups depending on the application, thus contributing to a cost-effective test environment that you can adapt for different test scenarios.
