PARACHUTE & CARGO DROP TESTING

DATA COLLECTION IN THE SKY AND ON THE GROUND

 

The Challenge:

  • Parachute structural integrity and airlift delivery testing, including cargo airdrops and low-altitude parachute-extraction system (LAPES) deliveries
  • Laboratory and field testing of vibration, strain, acceleration, force, temperature, etc.
  • Strict size and weight constraints for onboard instrumentation, including power
  • High-shock environments combined with environmental and weatherextremes
  • Limited or no communication signals, extended record times in remote locations

 

The Solution:

  • Embedded, miniature DTS data acquisition systems and sensors
  • Designed to be embedded on or in test article
  • Standalone recorder with microprocessor, excitation, signal conditioning
  • IP68 rated systems available for dust and water ingress
  • MIL-STD-810G rated systems available for temperature, altitude, shock & vibration
  • Modular configuration for channel count and sensor support
  • Store in place reliability, data writes directly to flash memory
  • Experts in dynamic testing and high-shock environments
