The competencies / expertise

Following our tradition the German engineering team is strong on RF technologies (in particular electronic warfare and radar) as well as military Avionics. In most of the cases a project starts with a consultancy for our customers for a test strategy. Later on the team in Ulm designs the test system, defines the hardware requirements and develops the test software. A huge part of the job is the debugging, the integration, and the validation of complex test applications following regulations in safety critical areas. The technical expertise and skills of the engineers are the core of the Ulm team. Production is performed by strategic suppliers.

Resulting from this type of work several products have been developed in the last years around electronic warfare (VeriDAS, Flight Line Tester, Jammer Tester) and Aircraft Ground Equipment (like ROPCO). For the operation of the military ATEs we and our international partners are using the UTMS software product developed and maintained by SPHEREA. We are also experienced in the development of STTE (Special-to-Type-Test-Equipment) dedicated to production lines.

Most of the projects executed in Ulm are in an international frame work involving European customers and partners and running for several years. Therefore a professional project management is a must. All our project managers are certified PMPs. Managing complexity is not only important for engineers, but also for the project managers.

Those projects also require a sales team ready to work for many months – in some cases even years – with a complicated customer organization and a need for a technical sales approach.

In the last years SPHEREA Ulm worked on a new technology for detection of chemical elements with a very low concentration. It is based on IMS technology. The product LIMS can be used for a wide range of applications starting with semi-conductor industry and security.

In the past the people working in Ulm have been involved in a lot of different projects, different customers and industry organizations, as well as different scopes. Even though there is a strong history in the defense market, the team is very familiar to adapt processes as well as technical solutions very quickly to meet the specific customer needs and environments.

Our Technologies

SPHEREA Germany – Sicherheitskritische Umgebung

Safety Critical

As soon as a complex system is linked with safety, SPHEREA technologies bricks can be put together to provide validation, verification, and readiness for certification.

Radio Frequencies

Data and information transmission belongs to most testing projects. SPHEREA masters technologies up to radar frequencies to design testing tools for RF emitting and receiving systems such as jammers or radar warners.

SPHEREA Germany – Elektronische Kriegsführung

Electronic Warfare

Army of several nations have deployed SPHEREA EWS workshop and portable especialy designed test equipment. Test equipment is modular and comprises on platform LRU test units.

Spherea Germany – MIL-Grade

MIL-grade

As core competence, SPHEREA can realise all types of rigs and other measuring, simulating and testing equipment fulfilling the ultimate MIL Standards in system as well as in process quality.

SPHEREA Germany – Simulation

Simulation/Stimulation

Measurement & Testing is nowadays fully integrated into development and production. SPHEREA provides generic platforms (HW/SW) to modell, simulate all types of electronic/electric environment.

SPHEREA Germany – Sensoren

Sensors/Actuators

SPHEREA can modell or physically bring on any equipment, including measuring and testing devices of all kinds of sensors and actuators and make them become smart tools.

SPHEREA Germany – Optronik

Optronics

Linking electronic with optic and simulate them in different environments in order to calibrate both technologies is one of the core competencies of SPHEREA.

Spherea Germany – Elektronik (Avionic)

Electronic (Avionic)

Test benches from equipment via systems, to complete Rigs and Iron Birds in development, production and maintenance.

SPHEREA Germany – Obsoleszenz

Obsolescence Treatment

Never change a running system! Even after 30 years, SPHEREA ensures perenity of MIL and Aerospace complex complete system (HW/SW).

SPHEREA Germany – Digitale Lösungen

Digital Solutions

Being able to transform data into information and knowledge management with the possibility to integrate supervision of availability, status and localisation is part of this digital brick.

SPHEREA Germany – Energie

Power

Should you require to go from 200mA up to 2kA within ms according to a certain path or should you look for absorbtion, SPHEREA models, simulates, measures, and tests all power sources.

SPHEREA Germany – Einsetzbare Systeme

Deployable Systems

The need to have mobile testing facilities is constantly growing. SPHEREA can provide full equipment containment up to ISO5 in a mobile infrastructure.
