Ideal Aerosmith 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. Ideal’s 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.
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’s AERO 4000™ digital motion control system.
