The testing and calibration of inertial measurement units (IMUs) is a complex endeavor, especially as IMU technology outgrows the capabilities of equipment used in the testing process. With replacement proving to be both costly and time-consuming, Ideal Aerosmith took it upon itself to find manufacturers a feasible alternative.
Sometimes, a customer needs a testing solution, but they don’t have the resources (or time) to purchase one. When one of Ideal Aerosmith’s customers was challenged by a tight budget and short timeline, the Ideal Aerosmith team stepped up to help their project succeed.
The prevalence of broadband and satellite-based connectivity options that allow airlines and operators to stream and capture data on and off modern aircraft continues to grow. As a result, the need to explore, design and integrate new satellite communication (SatCom) possibilities became an important priority for one Ideal Aerosmith customer.
Every so often, a client comes to Ideal Aerosmith with an idea or a project that isn’t quite ready to get rolling. As was the case with a large two-axis position and rate table project; sometimes the best success stories just need a little more time to get written.
