Hardware In The Loop (HWIL) involves creating systems that leverage actual hardware within a modeling and simulation environment to test complex embedded systems software. These systems are required when actual testing is costly or impossible, for example when testing the NASA Space Launch System (SLS). The HWIL environment complements actual hardware components that are required for testing and simulate specific scenario driven conditions to test either the hardware itself or the embedded software.
Geocent has the expertise to integrate hardware and software components into hardware-in-the-loop laboratories. Expertise includes:
- Troubleshooting entire labs to find and fix root causes.
- Setting up and running system-level tests.
- Analyzing data to find problems in the lab before hardware deployment.
