ACCUDYNA is the best choice in the development, design and manufacture of precision motion simulators for the aeronautics, space, defense, automotive and consumer industries.
Our products range extends from small, single-axis rate tables for the automotive industry, through three-axis motion simulators for flight motion profiling, up to five-axis Flight Motion Simulator (FMS) for the defense industry.
Our customers use our motion simulator equipment to ensure the precise functioning of Inertial Navigation Systems that are installed on board commercial airliners, jet airplanes, and helicopters. They make use of our motion simulators during development, production, calibration, inspection and servicing of gyroscopes, accelerometers, complete Inertial Reference Units (IRU), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS), or Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS).
The use of our motion simulators during development of HardWare-In-the-Loop simulation can help reduce time and cost, by minimizing the number of field trials required. Within the maritime industry there is an increased demand for dynamic positioning, navigation and automation for merchant ships, offshore installations and underwater remotely operated vehicles. ACCUDYNA test equipment enables maritime engineers to meet this demand by simulating roll, pitch, yaw and heave motion during the development and production of marine inertial sensors.
Inertial guidance systems and AOCS (Attitude and Orbital Control Systems) components, such as Inertial Reference Units (IRU) or optoelectronic equipment (e.g. star trackers, sun sensors), may be tested and calibrated with the help of ACCUDYNA motion simulators for Inertial Guidance testing. Such simulators may be equipped with either a thermal vacuum chamber or a temperature chamber for reproducing the harsh environment of space.
Micro Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology has enabled a new generation of miniaturized, low-cost, low-power inertial sensors for use in the consumer market. Applications ranging from cell phones to hard drives, cameras to computer game controllers, model helicopters to pedometers now regularly use MEMS gyros and accelerometers in a variety of performance-enhancing ways. Our motion simulators are also intended for use during development, production, in-process testing, calibration and final inspection of MEMS sensors.
The automotive industry's drive to enhance car safety has led to the development of many different safety systems, ranging from airbags to Electronic Stability Control (ESC) systems, all of which use inertial sensors. For example an ESC system may use as many as two rate sensors (yaw and roll) and one accelerometer (lateral movement). ACCUDYNA's range of test equipment not only enables automotive engineers to develop these safety systems, but also allows cost-effective testing and calibration during production.
Universities and research laboratories around the world are working to develop novel ways of using inertial sensors, stretching their performance levels, and developing lower-cost and smaller sensors. ACCUDYNA has a range of motion simulators that can assist in the laboratories.
