Using Wineman Technology INERTIA Test Automation Software to Create a Flight Control Simulation System for the Dream Chaser® Spacecraft


“Wineman Technology delivered our test system in an extremely tight turnaround time of three months and put in long hours to make sure every aspect of the application was running completely smoothly.”
- Jake Crine, PE, Senior Mechanical Systems Engineer, Sierra Nevada Corporation

The Challenge
Creating a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) flight surface actuation simulator to verify the design and performance of the flight control system for the Dream Chaser commercial transport spacecraft.

The Solution
Designing a control and data acquisition system that applies aerodynamic loads to the Dream Chaser using Wineman Technology INERTIA™ test automation software and non-proprietary hardware.
