Hardware-in-the-Loop and Embedded Software Test
Engineers must test aerospace and defense systems virtually before validating them in the real world to mitigate risks associated with cost and other hazards. Using hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test, you can test embedded systems earlier in the design cycle.
Success in the aerospace and defense industry demands that you deliver a high-uptime product with zero quality escapes. A fast, flexible approach to embedded software test is key for meeting tight deadlines and strict budgets. When cost, availability, and safety make real-world testing of satellites and planes impractical, virtual testing reduces risk. HIL simulation makes it easy to conduct real-time tests with scenario models before you run high-risk, expensive tests that take more time. NI's test solutions empower model-based testing with a flexible platform. This software-defined approach augments current systems with newer technology so you can test embedded software on line replaceable units like full authority digital engine control (FADEC), flight control computer, air management systems, and actuator control electronics. NI's HIL solutions can also be used as a digital twin or flatsat so you can test flight control computers for space systems on the ground.
