The 2443HV is one of Ideal Aerosmith’s standard Three-Axis Flight Motion Simulator models designed for Hardware-In-The-Loop (HWIL) Seeker Guidance Testing. This system is configured for interfacing to an RF chamber. Extremely efficient hydraulic actuators allow high system utilization, such as Monte Carlo-type test scenarios, on a time-continuous basis. This three-axis FMS system is controlled with Ideal’s flexible AERO4000™ Controller which provides real-time motion control via several industry-standard high-speed interfaces.
The 2443HV features a geared hydraulic drive on the innermost axis, high-performance direct drive hydraulic vane actuators on the Middle and Outer axes and precision optical encoders on all axes. The AERO4000™ digital signal processor (DSP) based controller provides accurate and reliable motion control. The user can operate the FMS from the AERO4000™ Graphic User Interface for local control, or remotely via a computer interface. It affords easy operation, and can accommodate the Ideal Aerosmith Table Language (ATL) for remote operation. The AERO4000™ controller comes standard with IEEE-488, RS-232, and Ethernet communication interfaces.
