Honda Aircraft Company chooses dSPACE simulators for integration testing on HondaJet

Honda Aircraft Company, Inc., has awarded a contract to dSPACE Inc. to provide turn-key hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulators for the HondaJet Integration and Test Facility (ITF). HondaJet is the first aircraft to be developed by Honda Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of Honda Motor Company, Ltd.

Honda Aircraft Company will utilize dSPACE simulators for automated integration testing of aircraft electrical and avionics subsystems. Production aircraft subsystems and Line Replaceable Units (LRU) will be tested against high-fidelity flight dynamics models, engine models and engineering prototypes running on networked dSPACE HIL platforms.

dSPACE HIL Simulators provide systems engineers with a complete testing framework for the integration of networked electronics, with support for a wide range of aircraft configurations.   A comprehensive suite of tools facilitate model-based design, automated testing and automated failure insertion. The environment offers a fully customizable human interface, automated traceability to requirements, and automated reporting and documentation. dSPACE HIL Simulators offer best-in-class, real-time performance in a modular and extensible architecture.

Honda Aircraft Company suppliers are held to the highest standards of quality and sustainability – attributes that have driven Honda's success for over 50 years. dSPACE meets these standards through its complete portfolio of solutions for HIL simulation, embedded systems prototyping, and production code generation.

In addition to providing the highest level of product quality, dSPACE offers full-service engineering support and services for complex, long-term programs.

dSPACE has a successful track record of supplying and supporting large, fully integrated HIL Simulators on programs such as Future Combat System and Joint Strike Fighter. dSPACE is also the global supplier of HIL Simulators for General Motors and subsidiaries.
