YOUR LONGSTANDING ALL-ROUND AND TRUSTWORTHY ENGINEERING PARTNER IN THE DEFENCE INDUSTRY

The security and defence industry is not only challenging on account of the particular requirements it has with regard to legal and safety-relevant parameters; it must also meet market requirements from a technical point of view. The EDAG Group offers a comprehensive portfolio, beginning with the development and integration of protective systems, the simulative validation of blasting and ballistic scenarios, environmental trials, test validation, but also manufacturing electric/electronic components in low-volume series, including development of the software, through to technical editing in line with military standards and the corresponding visualisation in the VR/AR field.

ALL-ROUND UNDERSTANDING OF DEFENCE-RELATED CHALLENGES

Our experts have the necessary skills to handle specific customer projects with standards in the civilian and military sectors and to develop products in conformity with military standards such as STANAG (Standardization Agreement of the NATO member countries), VPAM (Association of Testing Bodies for Attack-Resistant Materials and Constructions) und NIJ (National Institute of Justice).

Expert knowledge on the topic

NEW CERTIFICATION STANDARD "VPAM ERV - EDITION 3"

In the defense industry, safety has a very special significance and its requirement is regulated and guaranteed by special standards. Since the beginning of 2021, a new certification standard "VPAM ERV - Edition 3" has come into force.

As an international engineering partner for armored vehicles, EDAG has developed and offers an on-demand online session to illustrate the changes in both the evaluation and certification process.

E/E COMPONENT DEVELOPMENT

  • System architecture and planning: customer-specific assembly of systems and evaluation of their technical feasibility during the architecture phase
  • Development (circuit diagram, layout, mechanical systems): conversion of the system architecture into a fully operational circuit diagram, including layout, paying particular attention to EMC-compliant design, lifecycle management, service life calculation and signal integrity. (PD, SPICE, signal integrity simulation)
  • In-house production: prototype and low-volume production (<1000) on in-house production line.
  • Commissioning, end of line, QA testing: testing and commissioning of individual assemblies, and creation of a suitable EOL (end of line) test
  • Certification: system-oriented and with standardised design by ensuring that architecture and development conform to standards

TESTING AND VALIDATION

Testing of military vehicle components and assemblies:

  • Carrying out tests in accordance with MIL-STD-810G
  • Mechanical validation and strength tests
  • Endurance testing of hang-on parts
  • Environmental simulation of electric and electronic components
  • Individual test bench construction

TECHNICAL EDITING

As a service provider, we have been supporting leading international system houses in the military field for a decade now, and have a wealth of experience in the civilian automotive sector on which we can draw.

  • Interactive electronic technical documentation (IETD) in accordance with ASD/AIA S1000D and the associated spare parts catalogues in accordance with ATA Spec S2000M.
  • Vehicle manuals, specification books and workshop literature for everything from individual components to complete vehicles for national and international users
  • Creation of a logical structure, production of text and image material, and translation management

Augmented Reality (AR) /
Virtual Reality (VR)

3D digitalisation and visualisation - possible military applications:

  • Training documents for the installation and removal of individual components and complex installation spaces
  • Events and attendance at a trade fairs
  • Assistance with complex tasks e.g. in design, maintenance, training
  • Non-verbal preparation for use in technical editing (service literature and operating manuals)
  • Acting as a bridge to military documentation standards, and editing in accordance with standards S1000, S2000 und H011.

OFFSET /
INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS
