Applied Dynamics International, Crane Aerospace & Electronics to build aircraft braking lab in Burbank

Crane Aerospace & Electronics, the world’s leading developer of aircraft brake control systems, and Applied Dynamics, the industry leader in simulation and testing tools for complex control systems, announce today they have agreed to work together to bring new technologies in a major upgrade of the Crane Aerospace & Electronics’ Simulation Laboratory.

Crane has used Applied Dynamics as a technical partner for hardware-in-the-loop, software development, and engineering services for over 20 years. This major new contract strengthens the relationship and will provide Crane with a facility to showcase what’s possible in simulated environments for brake control system development. The new capabilities will allow Crane to provide greater system integration and testing through fault insertion, in addition to the increased accuracy and fidelity of performance testing.

“Crane continues to innovate the technology of aircraft brake control systems and the application of model based systems engineering expertise,” said Scott James, president and CEO of Applied Dynamics, “and Applied Dynamics is very proud to be a part of this technology partnership.”

“Crane’s brake control simulation capabilities definitely differentiate us from others in the industry,” said Brian Barrett, Vice President of Landing System Solutions for Crane Aerospace & Electronics. “It is one of the key reasons that we are known for our technical expertise and our ability to deliver enhanced braking performance and safety.”†
