Implementation of Linear Electro-Mechanical Actuators (LEMA) in various applications which requires an exact functionality has initiated for consideration in examining the performance of system under real time constraints prior to the utilization in the real time application. As this assessment supports to examine the capability of the LEMA in the parameters such as load bearing capacity, accuracy of actuation, consistency in position and efficiency. It also helps to get rid of from the unexpected destructions during the real time application which was caused by improper functioning due to abnormal conditions. In this paper, a LEMA which is employed for a missile launcher is designed under real time constraints before on boarding on to real time application. Initially a feasible and reliable test setup has been created which can simulate real time scenario. Further the designed test setup is developed virtually in MATLAB/Simulink and tested by simulating real time constraints. The designed LEMA is mounted to missile launcher and performed a dynamic analysis under real time constraints in Adams software. Finally, the LEMA is tested on the laboratory test setup under real time constraints and the performance of LEMA is analyzed for real time application.
