DGA Missile Tests - New acquisition and monitoring & control systems.

14.06.2018

In 2015, the DGA (French Defence Procurement Agency) awarded EES-Clemessy the contract to revamp 16 test systems.
Used on all types of ammunition and missile propellants, these test facilities feature very high technical performance and strict safety requirements.
By way of comparison, if the monitoring & control system of an Ariane 6 launcher operates at 200 kmph, that of a missile test system operates at around 10,000 kmph.

Achieving such a level of performance is based on the implementation of the SYCLONE by Clemessy real-time modular software, coupled with the DEWESoft measurement systems, communicating on an EtherCAT network.

The first phase of the project has just been successfully completed. The mobile test bays and the analysis and simulation laboratory have just been delivered and the experts from the DGA are starting their validation phase.
The stages involving the completion of the operational test benches will start in the coming weeks.

The development teams have been very much involved and made it possible to meet the milestones set on this project.
