Rapid Prototyping Solutions
Innovation in aerospace and defense often involves the development of a system that introduces new technology for specific benefit and involves taking the system through a technology maturation process where the technology readiness level is increased through a series of test campaigns.
Rapid prototyping solutions have become the go-to method for rapidly and cost-effectively performing comprehensive model-based testing to ready a system for flight test, sea trials, field test, etc. Whether developing a new avionics architecture, a more electric airborne system, or a new flight control system, a rapid prototyping platform allows prototype systems to be connected to a real-time, model-based computing environment allowing the system-under-test to be put through highly realistic, normal operating mode and failure mode conditions with simulation-in-the-loop.
Benefits of Rapid Prototyping
A rapid prototyping test platform is a significantly lower-cost testing platform as compared with the main alternative, e.g. flight test, sea trials, field test, etc. A rapid prototyping test platform also allows for the types of failure mode and edge-of-the-envelope testing that would be unsafe to perform in, for example, flight test. Well-implemented rapid prototyping solutions will make heavy use of test automation to minimize the test operation effort, allow for fully-automated test campaign execution, and support the use of multiple rapid prototyping test rigs to perform parallel testing, e.g. simulated flight test, dramatically reducing the technology maturation lifecycle time, dramatically reducing test operation labor, and maximizing return-on-investment.
