Cost-Effective Flight Motion Simulation For Missiles And Their Targets

Typical flight motion simulation (FMS) systems for missiles with infrared (IR) seekers include missile and target simulation subsystems. The seeker “flies” a three-axis table – the missile simulator – whereas a simulation computer “flies” a two-axis positioner – the evading target. When the costs of this process became unmanageable for one aerospace company, they sought … Continue reading “Cost-Effective Flight Motion Simulation For Missiles And Their Targets”

Unconventional Inertial Testing

One of Ideal Aerosmith’s strengths is finding innovative solutions that satisfy the ever-increasing pressure to reduce costs, increase throughput and improve quality. When we were approached by a prominent tool manufacturer about testing specialized tools, which employ IMUs as core measurement instruments, we were ready to help.
