Electric FMS / HWIL Systems

Ideal Aerosmith specializes in the design and manufacture of high-performance motion systems for Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) testing of missile seekers (IR, Laser or RF), guided munitions and inertial guidance systems.

Ideal is the premier supplier of state-of-the-art direct-drive electric motion systems. These systems feature high-torque, direct-drive DC brushless motors that provide a very attractive “torque to weight ratio” when compared to electric “brush-type” DC drive motors.

Ideal Aerosmith electric flight motion simulators are configured with the AERO 4000™ Digital Motion Controller. This controller is Ideal Aerosmith’s flagship controller and an essential component of the larger Ideal motion simulation systems. Our AERO 4000™ Controller is built upon commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and software platforms to minimize cost and delivery schedules, as well as to provide Ideal’s customers with a product that does not lock them into proprietary technology and single-source part vendors.

Built from the ground up for configurability of both hardware and software, the AERO 4000™ is the most robust controller available for performing high-dynamic HWIL missile and guided munitions flight simulations.

The following electric table systems are most commonly used for HWIL applications. Please refer to the appropriate table system page for more information.
