and Validation Test Bench
Testing of complex and on-board systems
The U-TEST real-time System is a universal, flexible test environment dedicated to the test activities for the design, integration and qualification phases of on-board systems.
U-TEST was originally developed for aviation system manufacturers and OEMs and is applied to complex, long lifetime systems also to be found in the railway and energy sectors.
To avoid the extra costs and delays which can result from the late discovery of problems during a systems’ development, the current trend is to perform more and more test activities during the design phases via virtual tests.
U-TEST allows extensive use of simulation, especially by offering the possibility to test hybrid platforms combining simulations and actual physical components.
U-TEST is therefore the core of a family of landing gear validation benches. The tests initially carried out as pure simulations (with no hardware component) were then performed in an identical manner on the physical benches, validating the complete landing gear with its electronic control units and mechanical and hydraulic components
U-TEST guarantees the perfect continuity of the validation process, from design to final acceptance, allowing test procedures to be reused and to continuously mature.
U-TEST: an open system
Due to its modular and open architecture, integration benches realized with U-TEST can be adapted to specific needs for projects of all sizes no matter how complex they are. Instead of offering a frozen solution, the U-TEST Real-Time System provides a “toolbox” giving the user a high level of independence to develop their bench based on new parameters, without having to return to their supplier. The move from one development program to another is achieved without generating non-recurring costs, simplifying operation and configuration to the maximum.
