And while the aerospace sector is seriously concerned with aviation efficiency and the requirements of environmental directives, defence industry manufacturers have the added concerns of ensuring reliability and high performance of military systems, often under extreme conditions.

Ever‐shortening design and development time frames of modern aerospace and space programs demand 'right‐first-time' engineering.

HBK has developed software and hardware solutions which reduce test time so that our customers can reduce time to market.

Your Partner Through the Entire Product Life Cycle

A&D products are complex, expensive and have a long lifecycle. Development often starts virtually with simulation playing a role in achieving the desired results. However, results still need to be validated by physical testing of prototypes to increase confidence and data integrity before production. High-quality, time- and cost-efficient testing is critical to meeting program milestones, and HBK adds real value to the development and validation process by providing integrated solutions for test and measurement.

Before certification, aerospace products face intensive qualification tests and flight trials, to ensure that equipment designs meet performance expectations. Malfunction is not an option. Design flaws must be discovered to ensure maximum safety in operation. Qualification testing is critical in the evaluation of the static and dynamic structural integrity of a system. HBK solutions help manufacturers achieve the certificate of airworthiness and qualify new developments before introduction.

HBK continues to support ongoing testing in the field for legal compliance, extended product life plus monitoring of environmental impact with engineering services and solutions. These include predictive maintenance and reliability solutions that support a wide range of reliability and maintainability analysis techniques, including life data analysis and accelerated life testing.

Mastering the Challenges of Testing Hybrid and Electric Aircraft

Aircraft manufacturers have long been working on making flying more environmentally friendly. The innovations which will make this next generation of sustainable aircraft possible are going to involve changes to all elements of the aircraft: propulsion systems, structures, and flight strategies.

 

HBK enables these innovations by empowering engineers to confidently test and validate their designs to ensure airworthiness.
