Performance validation research
Test engineers spend a significant portion of their time "juggling" between test data from physical sensors, analysers and digital simulators. While specialised solutions in data acquisition, analysis and management are in fact available, practically none of these covers the entire testing life cycle, from logging to evaluation and application of the test findings.
This was the motivation for perfecting EALIS: a fast, flexible and automated multi-source system. Its strength lies in its ability to unify all test sources: the tool is identical regardless of the work site and nature of the data used. EALIS is applied in complex or repetitive tests which require large volumes of data and are conducted over long periods of time.
All sources accommodated under a single interface
EALIS represents over 3,000 days of development.
The solution can be adapted to new test projects or inserted into ongoing testing. In both cases, it achieves:
- A higher degree of adaptation to changes or incidents detected during the physical or digital trials
- Faster and more reliable analyses of findings thanks to the transition to automated test scenarios
A living memory of tests
EALIS encompasses acquisition and processing of data that are more or less structured: digital, analogue, audio and video signals, test benches, simulators, aircraft in flight, prototypes, etc. This accelerates engineering work with a flexible interface in the form of curves, charts, needle gauges, etc. The data remain available after the test. When drafting reports, they are "replayed" if necessary, with a single mouse click.
EALIS constitutes a "living memory" for tests, based on knowledge in every specialised field. Its areas of application includes industry, transport, space, IT networks and multimedia.

François Calvignac started his career in the railway industry in Reichshoffen, in France's Alsace region, working for Alstom Transport. After two years as a dynamic calculation engineer, he took on the design, construction and commissioning of the Alstrom collision testing centre (Dynaccess). This marked the start of three exciting years, involving launching trains at walls!
After five years, François decided to return to his home region of Toulouse and join Sogeti High Tech in 2006. His first mission consisted in validating the structure of the wing surface of an aircraft after aerodynamic improvements to the wing tips.
François then completed expertise missions at structural laboratories or in projects related to flight recorders.
After leading several assignments as a commitments manager, François is now in charge of developing new areas of activity, particularly in relation to innovation and the EALIS project.
