Hydraulic FMS / HWIL

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 hydraulic motion systems. These systems feature high torque hydraulic actuators that provide a very attractive “torque to weight ratio” when compared to electric drive motors with similar torque output.

Ideal Aerosmith hydraulic 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 flight simulations.

Model 2433HV Three-Axis Hydraulic Flight Motion Simulator

2433HV
Ideal Aerosmith’s Three-Axis Hydraulic Flight Motion Simulators are used for development and production hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) testing of guidance and flight control systems for small and medium size vehicles. The flight motion simulators reproduce, in real-time, the high-dynamic rotational responses of an actual vehicle in flight. Our Three-Axis Hydraulic Flight Motion Simulators are configured with efficient, high-torque hydraulic actuators and they are rugged enough to allow high-performance simulations, such as Monte Carlo-type test scenarios, on a time-continuous basis.

Model 2453H-ER Three-Axis Hydraulic Flight Motion Simulator

2453H-ER
Accurate and reliable motion control of the Model 2433HV or the Model 2453H-ER is achieved with a servo-controlled system consisting of direct-drive hydraulic actuators, precision optical encoders, and either an electric or hydraulic drive on the inner axis. The flight motion table is designed to provide optimum dynamic performance when integrated with Ideal Aerosmith’s AERO 4000™ digital motion control system

Aeroload Simulation System

Aeroload Simulation System
The Aeroload Simulation System - sometimes referred to as a fin loader - is a general-purpose test instrument that can produce a wide range of rotary position motion, and/or active dynamic torque, to simulate loads that control surfaces, such as fins, experience during missile flight. Many customers use this equipment in conjunction with a multi-axis Flight Motion Simulator, to complete a hardware-in-the-loop test suite for their guidance system article(s).
  • Guidance and flight control systems testing for small and medium size test articles
  • Installation in RF anechoic chambers; compatible with antenna arrays or X-Y target motion simulators
