If You Can’t Test It, Maybe You Cant-Test It

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.

Putting The Ideal Test Lab To Work

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.

Connecting Aircraft – Concept To Reality In 90 Days

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.

The Power Of Perseverance

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.

Keeping Batch IMU Testing On Track

When calibrating and verifying thirty inertial measurement units (IMUs) at the same time, one catastrophic failure can result in a costly retesting of the entire batch. If one bad IMU is allowed to impact all the others, the efficiency of simultaneous testing suffers. As one manufacturer planned its process, it relied on Ideal Aerosmith to make IMU testing as efficient as possible.
