Testing and Simulation for Flight Systems

Design→Simulate→Test→Repeat

Simulation and testing are two sides of a single coin.  You need both to ensure a safe and effective design. We produce our own high-fidelity simulations on in-house high-performance computer/cluster. We are experienced in high speed data acquisition and control. We have demonstrated experience with high-speed flight fluid and structural dynamics and launch systems. Our team provided a key role in the development and successful execution of NASA’S Ares I-X Flight Test.  We are performing extensive cryogenic propellant explosion testing and creating detailed simulations to characterize and understand what we measure.
