Speedgoat enables aerospace and military engineers around the world to achieve the high performance, strict quality and high accuracy required for their innovative and long-lasting solutions. The MathWorks and Speedgoat workflow facilitate the development of processor-intensive applications such as:

  • Civil aircraft
  • Helicopters
  • Satellites
  • Spacecraft
  • Drones
  • Military aircraft
  • Fighter jets 
  • Missiles

With MathWorks and Speedgoat you can follow a Model-Based Design workflow from concept to hardware verification using industry-standard tools like MATLAB® & Simulink®, Simulink Real-Time™, Simulink Test, HDL Coder, Aerospace Toolbox, Aerospace Blockset™ and Simscape Driveline™; while using various analog I/O and digital I/O together with standard avionic and military industry protocols like ARINC 429, ARINC 629, ARINC 664 Pt 7, AFDX, MIL-STD-1553 and SDL / HDLC. Additional useful interfaces include resolver and VDT emulation, temperature emulation and a precision timing module with IRIG and 1PPS interfaces.
