Support for military systems: an increased operational availability

SPHEREA provides a global range of test Avionic equipment for electronic warfare systems, optronic systems or for whole platforms for Maintenance Level 1 (directly on the platform) and Maintenance Level 2 (maintenance workshop) as well as for the industry during system validation. This will be integral to ensure your long term operational readiness and that your systems are continuously reliable and safe.

Civil Aviation

Maintenance test solutions for airlines and MRO

If you are a MRO (Maintain repair & Overhaul) or an airline, the most cost effective avionics maintenance solution is our test bench ATEC Series 6. This will give you the capability to manage the maintenance and repair of electronic systems at your, or your customers facility. This leads to improved savings in reducing no-fault-founds.
Before maintenance, the OEMs (equipment manufactures) needs to produce the equipment. SPHEREA can provide test solutions for the production line.
Last but not least prior to the production phase, equipment and systems need to be developed. We can support you with test and simulation solutions during the entire development cycle of the products.

Railway

A partner for the rail industry

Today the rail industry faces the same issues experienced by the aeronautics industry in recent years. With 50 years of expertise in critical systems for the aeronautics industry, SPHEREA has developed solutions adapted to the railway sector’s needs.

The railway industry faces changes like increasingly complex systems relying on smart sensors/actuators, compressed development, production schedules or strict safety and security regulations (IEC61508).The railway industry has also to adapt to the digitalization of the sector. Finally the traffic growth due to increasing urbanization leads to changes in mobility trends.

A number of methods and technologies, widely adopted in aeronautics, are spreading to railway. Test means and methods are no exception.

Today SPHEREA offers its know-how and solutions to optimize the rolling stock’s Life-Cycle Cost:

  • Digital solutions: simulation framework, virtual testing, predictive maintenance, augmented reality
  • Test benches for integration activities
  • Embedded test equipment
  • High rate manufacturing test means for embedded equipment
  • Safety and testability management to improve the Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) of rolling stock
  • Life extension solutions
  • Power electronics and cable testers

Industry

With a 50 years pedigree of providing test solutions to key customers in Aerospace and Defense, SPHEREA has the ability to adapt this strengh to other mission critical systems in the industrial sector:

Due to the changes in the world, the security market gets more and more import. SPHEREA supports the security industry with sensors for explosive material as well as test solutions for convoy protection jammer.

Semi-Conductor industry requires heavy invests for state-of-the-art production lines. Therefore, the productivity of the production line is a key element for the commercial success. SPHEREA is supporting those production lines with a sensor system checking online for polutions jeopardizing the production process.

Automotive industry is looking forward to the next generation of cars with electromobility and autonomous driving. SPHEREA has the products for simulating power electronic as well as multiple sensors. This is supporting the integration and validation of the electronic part of a car, which becomes more and more a complex and safety critical system.

Our solutions for Bid Data Management and Monitoring&Control is supporting customers in the management of complex production lines, where a significant amount of data is collected. Industry 4.0 is in the focus of SPHEREA. The differentiator for SPHEREA is, that we are not only managing the data, but provide the hardware and software interfaces for the collection of the data.

Energy power plants are safety and system critical. SPHEREA is providing data acquisition modules with safety functions as well as centralized control stations for safety critical functions. We also have the competences and skills to simulate power generation and consumption in the frame of the smart grids, required for the changes on the energy market (green energy).

Space industry depends on a high quality of their products: satelites as well as launchers. Therefore, testing during the design and validation phase as well as the acceptance testing of the final products and product components is cruicial. This is valid for a broad spectrum of technologies: digital and analog electronics, power electronic and, radio frequency. This is exactly the domain of SPHEREA.
