Aerospace & Defense
In the field of Aerospace and Defense a strong change is in place, as new programs take advantage of innovative aircraft technologies and capitalise on materials and cutting-edge manufacturing processes, especially in Safety sector. When managing a product life-cycle in aerospace field, innovation is a basic need, but it must be coupled with budget and timing compliance; for this reason inter-company collaboration is a well-established attitude..
Italian aerospace market is composed not only by big contractors but also by companies with smaller size, often either specialized in single avionic apparatuses or subsystems or mere producers of components and/or services for the bigger companies.
Expertise gained in Aerospace and Defense area belongs to the second type and was made actual by developing several applications in many areas and in providing finished components (from specialized interfaces up to single avionic apparatuses up to fully equipped test benches)..
SIDeA is the sole distributor of products by Ballard Technology, a leading American company in Aerospace sector, operating in the field of avionic products specialized in testing, simulating and analysing communications among flight equipments. Beyond being Ballard exclusive supplier in Italy, SIDeA is widely expert in training its customers in Aerospace and Defense general topics and in developing specific solutions.
Among our documented experiences, we may cite:
- Functional test benches for avionic apparatus and sonar;
- Multifunctional test benches for aircraft fuel sub-systems;
- Equipment for testing electronic boards; systems for simulating/analysing avionic buses (such as MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429…);
- Systems for managing telemetric data from aircraft to ground station;
- Development of Test Manager for automatic test systems;
- Production of electronic and microwave apparatus;
- Supply of specialized components for avionic buses.
