Paper Abstract

The tests which are conducted to observe the behavior of a system in realistic operational conditions have great importance in order to determine its performance prior to the relevant field studies. These studies provide the designers with deciding on the necessary design updates and they also lead to reduce the total development cost in a significant level. In order to execute the mentioned tests, the motion simulators being able to simulate the motion characteristics of the system in a realistic environment are needed. Looking at the available simulators in the world, it is seen that different system configurations have been used in accomplishing the desired test objectives. In these systems, not only the mechanical designs differ from each other, but also the control systems are employed in various structures. In this study, the properties of widely-used motion simulators designed for infrared camera systems are evaluated with regard of the certain design issues. Also, their advantages and disadvantages are emphasized.
