Webinar: The convergence between synthetic and physical testing for aerospace system validation


Model-based test engineering is emerging as an exciting approach to create test architectures that span model development and physical testing. Where DIY or vendor-specific solutions made these approaches difficult to integrate in the past, new standards and cross-vendor solutions make these approaches possible today.

The result is an exciting opportunity for the reuse of data across the development cycle- improving model development, test design, production processes, and maintenance support. This session will highlight some of the technologies and standards that are changing the way we think about testing and present examples of how engineers are gaining efficiencies throughout the product development process.

NI’s platform centric approach enables organisations to connect their test strategy from the prototyping stage all the way through to manufacturing and sustainment across a range of application areas. We will discuss 3 specific use cases for actuation systems, battery technology & aerospace structures.

During our webinar delegates will learn :

  • The power of leveraging open and scalable test architectures
  • How test IP reuse can be realised across the development process
  • How to effectively transition from synthetic to physical test (software into hardware)
  • The versatility of NI’s Test Platform
  • How Test Data can empower and inform product development
