Competencies

The competencies / expertise

Following our tradition the German engineering team is strong on RF technologies (in particular electronic warfare and radar) as well as military Avionics. In most of the cases a project starts with a consultancy for our customers for a test strategy. Later on the team in Ulm designs the test system, defines the hardware requirements and develops the test software. A huge part of the job is the debugging, the integration, and the validation of complex test applications following regulations in safety critical areas. The technical expertise and skills of the engineers are the core of the Ulm team. Production is performed by strategic suppliers.

Resulting from this type of work several products have been developed in the last years around electronic warfare (VeriDAS, Flight Line Tester, Jammer Tester) and Aircraft Ground Equipment (like ROPCO). For the operation of the military ATEs we and our international partners are using the UTMS software product developed and maintained by SPHEREA. We are also experienced in the development of STTE (Special-to-Type-Test-Equipment) dedicated to production lines.

Most of the projects executed in Ulm are in an international frame work involving European customers and partners and running for several years. Therefore a professional project management is a must. All our project managers are certified PMPs. Managing complexity is not only important for engineers, but also for the project managers.

Those projects also require a sales team ready to work for many months – in some cases even years – with a complicated customer organization and a need for a technical sales approach.

In the last years SPHEREA Ulm worked on a new technology for detection of chemical elements with a very low concentration. It is based on IMS technology. The product LIMS can be used for a wide range of applications starting with semi-conductor industry and security.

In the past the people working in Ulm have been involved in a lot of different projects, different customers and industry organizations, as well as different scopes. Even though there is a strong history in the defense market, the team is very familiar to adapt processes as well as technical solutions very quickly to meet the specific customer needs and environments.
