Real-time testing of modern actuation systems at Moog
Modern aviation actuation applications are trending towards electric actuation technologies as an alternative to hydraulic systems. These advances have introduced complex electronics and embedded software into an industry that has been historically mechanical in nature. This change is prompting developers of these systems to seek more effective testing strategies to ensure high reliability, performance and safety in operation. Real-time testing has played a key role in the development of complex, modern actuation systems.
