For a customer in the aerospace & defense technology sector in southern Germany, we at EDAG aeromotive, in cooperation with our customer and using functional rapid prototyping, are developing future-proof ergonomic operating concepts for control and data input for next-generation aircraft. Our field of activity includes both the production and development of electronics and also the construction of the initial concept studies on these flight control units. From the very beginning, experts ensure that the pilot is involved in the development of initial ideas.

Including the pilots is an elementary factor in increasing efficiency, so as to achieve our objectives. Once our customers and our team of experts are satisfied with the initial results, these are then transferred to CAD. The next step is to use 3D printing technology to create the first models for ergonomic testing. Using these models, the EDAG aeromotive experts carry out careful evaluations and test procedures in cooperation with the customer. On the basis of feedback received, our experts are responsible for the continuous development of the 3D printed models, up to connection to the flight simulator.
