The size and complexity of software for aerospace systems is growing significantly. The aeronautics industry faces the need to master the exponential growth for commercial and military aircraft, for instance.

The many requirements for commercial aircraft of tomorrow are driven by rising demands concerning efficient fuel consumption, low noise emission, flight range and economic efficiency. On top of all this, aerospace developers and manufacturers must adhere to a variety of demanding standards and norms.  

To rise to these challenges, aerospace companies are pushing forward with ground-breaking developments in many different fields. Throughout the entire development process for electronic control systems, dSPACE systems play a vital role, giving aerospace engineers the required tools to set up high-performance development environments.

Moreover, test systems from dSPACE also support advanced use cases that require real-time simulation of multiple systems interacting with real parts of the aircraft. The closed-loop environment provides an effective verification platform for embedded software as well as integrated systems. This approach allows for performing efficient and automated integration tests 24 hours a day. In addition, the open and expandable architecture enables scalability from large to small setups depending on the application, thus contributing to a flexible and cost-effective test environment adaptable for different test scenarios.   

By providing a seamless and easy integration of simulation models, dSPACE products make it possible to frontload tests of aircraft components or systems with the support of a comprehensive workflow and easy test system configuration. Therefore, even critical flight scenarios are fully reproducible in a safe laboratory environment for early testing on the ground. The flexible and scalable test environment enables detailed and fully automated tests at every development stage in almost all conceivable flight situations.
