HIL Testing Reduces Aircraft Arrestor Control System Field Testing Time by 75 Percent

Figure 1: An Aircraft Landing Assisted by the Arrestor System

"The out-of-the-box capabilities of NI VeriStand made it practical for us to develop an HIL test system, reducing our total testing cost by $735,000."

- Greg Sussman, CLA, Process Automation

The Challenge:
Lowering development cost without affecting product quality by reducing the number of field tests required to validate an NI CompactRIO control system.

The Solution:
Creating a cost-effective hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test system using NI VeriStand and the LabVIEW Real-Time Module with NI PXI hardware to perform thorough control system operational testing in the lab, which resulted in reducing our field testing time by 75 percent while providing more extensive test coverage for the arrestor system.
