Electronic Flight Control System-Rig (EFCS-Rig)
The EFCS-Rig is used for evaluation of components of flight control systems as well as the flight control chain - from pilot input through the on-board computer to the rudder actuating systems including the corresponding transmission media.
By coupling a cockpit simulation environment with actuator test rigs, the interactions between different systems can be examined holistically, e.g. for evaluating new reconfiguration concepts or new approaches for an integrated and holistic Vehicle Health and Usage Monitoring.
