A flexible and reliable system


Drawing on its experience of more than 200 test cells around the world, Safran Test Cells has developed its own Data Acquisition and Control System (DACS), called Cyres.
Featuring standard architecture that combines hardware and software designed to acquire vital engine parameters and control the test sequence, Cyres is characterized by high reliability (over 100 operational DACS systems) and flexibility (can be configured for all engine types and all types of tests).

Improved reliability

Improved reliability

Cyres and its predecessor, Ceres, include integrated troubleshooting tools and are supported 24/7 on 3 continents with remote access capabilities for online direct interventions.
