Aeronautic projects

"Customers come to us with technical challenges and together we see if we can find a solution"
Cedric Lorant, CEO of EmTroniX
EmTroniX is specialized in the development of custom electronics, FPGA IPs and software for projects where a close interaction between electronics, mechanics, embedded software and PC user interface is required but also when production is needed.
Since its beginning, EmTroniX has worked with key stakeholders of the aeronautic sector and is still working on revolutionary projects.
ORCA - Optical and RF Constellations on Airplanes
EmTroniX is proud to be partner of SkyfloX's ORCA revolutionary project - using airliner fleets to better understand our planet. By attaching payloads like cameras to airplanes, SkyfloX will add the missing layer for earth observation. With 30,000 flights over Europe every day, there is no doubt that the collected data will be highly valuable. This data will be used to prevent forest fire, help aid deployment, etc.

Rotorcraft air conditioning control software
EmTroniX designed an air-conditioning control model with Matlab/Simulink in order to improve the comfort in its customer's rotorcrafts. The goal was to design the entire air-conditioning control system (cooling, heating, ventilation, distribution, safety, communication, etc.) as an interaction of function and component based reference models.

EMTRONIX CONTRIBUTION

  • Definition of the model architecture,  real-time tasks scheduling, reference models interfaces

  • Function and component based reference models design

  • Creation of custom S-function for interfacing model and third-party hardware layer

  • Generation of test harnesses and test scenarios to check for full compliance with system requirements 

  • Compliance of models implementation with standard DO178B

  • Optimized automatic C-code generation and project (application + HW layer) compilation 

  • Integration of the software in the final HW target

  • Testing, calibration adjustments and validation in climate chamber

  • Development of a PC application to monitor all air-conditioning system parameters

ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS

  • This software design process has been also repeated for other rotorcraft types (Racer, H160, H145T2, H175, H130)
