In January 2015 ACUTRONIC successfully integrated an Infra-Red Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) system for a leading NATO defence organisation.  This work comprised not only the delivery of an ACUTRONIC high dynamic 5-Axis Flight Motion Simulator (FMS) but also the integration and validation of a SBIR Mirage-H Infra-Red Scene Projection System and a JRM Technologies CHIMAERA Infra-Red Scene Generation System to create an integrated HWIL capability.

ACUTRONIC’s responsibility was to develop a communication architecture and protocol for the remote operation of the simulation systems, to mount and interconnect all of the sub-systems, to verify and validate their inter-operability using an infra-red camera to represent the UUT sensor and to demonstrate control from a JRM supplied ‘Real Time Computer System’. This activity provides the customer with a turn-key HWIL solution enabling the easy and risk free insertion of their own UUT and real time system model and simulation environment.

Customer's Chief Research Engineer stated that “the 5-Axis FMS has been utilized to conduct planned performance tests for the UUT developed by the customer in accordance with the SBIR Mirage-H Infra-Red Scene Projection System and JRM Technologies CHIMAERA Infra-Red Scene Generation System. During this process, the 5-Axis FMS has been operated successfully as per the technical instructions provided by ACUTRONIC.”
