The 2455H-ER extends the capabilities of Ideal’s three-axis FMS systems for hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) seeker/guidance testing, to include target motion simulation. The inner target axis can accommodate an infra-red scene projector. Extremely efficient hydraulic actuators allow high system utilization – such as Monte Carlo-type test scenarios – on a time-continuous basis.
As with our three-axis FMS systems, Ideal’s flexible AERO4000™ Controller affords real-time motion control via several industry-standard high-speed interfaces.
The 2455H-ER features a direct-drive DC brushless motor for the innermost (Roll) axis, high performance hydraulic vane actuators on the remaining four axes, and precision optical encoders on all axes. The AERO4000™ digital signal processor-based (DSP) 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.
