SPHEREA offers a computer-aided test solution for automating ground tests during the final assembly of an aircraft. The ESAO system validates the compliance of an aircraft prior to final acceptance.
These test tools are the result of knowledge gained on all the AIRBUS programmes from the A320 to the A350.

The advantages of such a system for a final assembly line include:

  • Increased productivity due to optimised tests
  • Reduced operator errors, the system is completely automated
  • Easy to use / Ergonomic
  • Lower integration costs


SPHEREA intervenes at different levels:

  • Engaging with OEMs and Contractors, our engineers fully integrate into the team.
  • Requirements capture consultancy.
  • Design and installation of the appropriate system, software and hardware architecture.
  • Tool manufacture
  • Supply of tool maintenance solutions
  • Maintaining equipment and systems in operational conditions throughout the programme's lifetime
  • Management of necessary system changes (series evolutions and new programs)

SPHEREA now offers over 100 ground test equipment families (EGSE. Electrical Ground Support Equipment) which includes:

  • Wiring test bench
  • Circuit breaker simulation bench
  • Downloading equipment
  • Bus analyser (CAN, Arinc)
