Verification of Networked Aircraft Systems

For testing multiple networked aircraft systems you might require a test bench that corresponds to the aircraft in size and dimensions and includes the actual cable harnesses. The setup shown in this uses case also consists of various mechanical components, for example, control surface actuators. The networked aircraft system hardware, such as the electrical power system, is connected to multiple SCALEXIO systems that simulate missing aircraft systems in real-time. For example, these simulated systems include engines or avionics systems that are interconnected with the systems under test in the real aircraft. The HIL simulators also provide navigation and environmental data including aerodynamics representative of the flight scenario.
