Ground Testing Sensors For New or Modified Aircraft

Ground testing is mandatory for a new aircraft design or an aircraft that has undergone significant structural modification. PCB manufactures ground testing sensors/transducers to meet these needs. Ground testing encompasses flight loads simulation, material static and fatigue, structural dynamics, modal analysis, airborne and structure borne acoustics and more. We categorize our products into three ground test application/product areas:

  • GVT (Ground Vibration Testing) - Includes sensors for modal analysis and random vibration testing, and shakers to create the excitations.
  • Reliability and Functional Testing - A great deal of aerospace ground testing involves exposing systems to realistic loading and environmental testing conditions. PCB manufactures environmental testing sensors for pyroshock, cryogenic fuel and rocket motor pressure, high temperature vibration, and torque.
  • Acoustic Testing and Certification – Noise sources are measured with a large variety of prepolarized, externally polarized, array and specialty microphones, and are complemented by an assortment of preamplifiers, signal conditioners, calibrators, and accessories like mounting stands and nose cones.
