Test Services

Our world-class test facility is accredited to UKAS ISO 17025 for mechanical, environmental and corrosion testing.

We have more than 40 years’ experience of structural testing, ranging from multi-channel full-scale C-130 fuselage and wing fatigue life testing to single component and material testing.

Structural Testing

Leveraging on our proven experience in large structural testing, we offer full range of structural tests on a single and multi-axis basis.

We design and manufacture custom-built rigs to perform fatigue and static tests on components, as well as full-scale specimens.

Instrumentation

With a wealth of experience in acquiring test data in both ground and flight test environments, we can provide bespoke instrumentation packages for project specific requirements that allow us to react to changes through your project lifecycle. We have the technical expertise to capture the data you require.

Integration Testing

We provide integration support on multiple platforms and systems, collaborating with you throughout the project. Systems integration testing involves the overall testing of a complete system of multiple components or elements. The system under test may be composed of variations of hardware and software.

We can work with you at any stage of your project to provide bespoke integration test packages that ensure we assist in risk reduction prior to aircraft or platform installation to save time and cost.

Environmental and Corrosion Testing

We can provide you with the assurance that your system or product will be sustainable within the necessary operating environments and will therefore continue to perform at its maximum potential.

Operational Loads Measurement

To help you understand your operational usage of your fleet of aircraft, we can install instrumentation, calibrated to the chosen platform. We can help you validate the fatigue monitoring process, understand the operational loading environment, identify causes of high fatigue damage and determine load reduction strategies for the chosen platform.

We provide design, installation, calibration, analysis and reporting, as well as in-service support of Operational Loads Measurement (OLM) systems on a variety of aircraft, ranging from UAVs and gliders to large transport aircraft.
