Airborne and Airborne Systems Engineering & Integration

S.G.D specializes in the design of airframe and airborne systems including new systems installation and integration, aircraft modifications, upgrades and conversions. Our detailed design- mechanical, electrical and software, is tailored to meet customers specific requirements based on applicable Civil and Military Standards.

System engineering and Integrations of new systems on board an aircraft require experience, Know-how and systematic approach. S.G.D delivers integrated solutions, based on the specifications and performances requirements of our customers. Our Integration package includes mechanical and communications integration, wiring and installation. We integrate systems and components to work together as one unit and with the aircraft existent systems.

The integration is done from the system architecture design, development of control and processing units, performance of System Integration Lab (SIL) tests, Installation in the aircraft and full ground and flight testing.

Systems Operational Analysis & Testing

S.G.D’s Analyses Group supports a wide-range of capabilities to ensure the integrity of all ours designs. We provides a comprehensive set of analyses and simulations such as:

  • Loads Analyses
  • Stress Analyses- linear and nonlinear
  • Thermal Analyses
  • Aerodynamic Analyses
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) – loads, Stability & Control, Drag & Performance
  • Dynamic and Modal Analyses
  • Fatigue analyses

S.G.D has the expertise to plan and perform the relevant ground and flight tests, as required to certify our products. We support:

  • Ground Static tests
  • Ground Vibration Test
  • Wind Tunnel Tests
  • Safety of Flights Tests
  • Environmental Tests
  • Ground Fit & Function Tests
  • Heat transfer Tests
  • Radomes radiation tests
  • Flight Tests- envelope clearance, Performance evaluation
  • Instrumented flight Tests

All of our products leave the production line after all the necessary tests and analysis and meets our and customer quality requirements standers to the fully.

Airworthiness Certification

S.G.D supports the Certification process according to applicable requirements such as FAR, MIL-SPECs and specific customer’s authority’s requirements such as FAA, EASA, CAA or Military Authorities. We have certified a large number of modifications and installations on civil and military aircraft.

The Certification package as per the certifying authority requirement and include as a minimum:

  • Production, Assembly and Installation drawings and all engineering documents
  • Analyses documents and reports
  • Qualification documentation for LRU’s
  • Tests documents (test plan, test procedure, test results and evaluation)
  • Ground tests
  • Wind Tunnel tests
  • Safety of flight
  • Flight tests

The process is complete after receipt the Airworthiness Certificate of the modified aircraft from the relevant authority.

Airframe and Airborne Systems Production and Assembly

As part of our Turn Key capability, we deliver certified product as part of the program, to our customers using our Industrial Strength.

All of our products from pods to variety of kits are assembled in-house in our assembly plant by S.G.D’s qualified technicians, under our engineering and quality control organization supervision.

The plant, as well as all other functions of our company, is certified to meet the highest aerospace standards and quality assurance for airborne equipment.

Airborne PODs

S.G.D. Engineering Ltd. is a reputable world leader in design, integration, production and certification of airborne pods. S.G.D provides fully equipped airborne pod ready for integration with specific sensor systems. Our airborne pod package generally consists of pod structure, Environmental Control Systems (ECS), Radoms, wire harnesses, power management, power generation systems and pressurization system when required. Among the pods we developed we find Reconnaissance Cameras (“Recce Pod”), Synthetic Aperture Radar (“SAR Pod”), Electronic Warfare (“EW Pod”), Self-Protection Pod with or without RWR/MWS sensors, Chaff and Flares Dispensers (“SPS Pod”).

S.G.D’s airborne pod programs experience include pod development and production for various platforms (fighters, helicopters, business jets and large passenger aircrafts). We develop pods mounted through pylons and adapters or conformal. Our Pods are designed for defense industry market leaders as Lockheed Martin, Goodrich Corporation, and are being operational in many air forces worldwide.
