For Motion Simulation

Mistral hexapod is a dynamic system providing 6 degrees of freedom (6 DOF).

With efficient mechanical components, Mistral hexapod allows motion generation for up to 1 ton loads with important linear and angular travel ranges (up to ±460 mm in linear travel and ±40° in angular travel).

This hexapod was first designed to realize a heave motion to test boat hulls.

Mistral hexapod can also reproduce the trajectories of land, naval, or air vehicles and thus allows lab testing of sensors, SATCOM antennas, electro-optics systems… that will then be put onboard.

A HIGH-PERFORMANCE CONTROL CENTER

Controlling a parallel kinematics mechanism such as a motion hexapod requires fast and numerous calculations to transform the position instructions into motor current set points while permanently securing the motions.

For this, all our motion hexapods come with a high-performance control rack interacting with either our Graphical User Interface (GUI) or optionally directly with your software environment through an Application Programming Interface (API).
