Pyroshock Test Facility

The Pyroshock Test Facility is used to simulate the pyro-explosive shock loads of spacecraft, especially satellites, during separation, solar panel and antenna deployment. This system is critical to guarantee the durability and performance of products.

Pneumatic Shooting System

The Pneumatic Shooting System launches aluminum cylinders (projectiles) using air pressure and creates a shock load when these cylinders hit the resonant plate. The system can launch the projectile by pressurizing the air up to 4 bar and in this way it can reach an acceleration value of 3000g instantaneously. In the frequency band, 8000g values can be reached in the SRS graph.

Shock accelerometers are devices that measure the acceleration of shock loads. These devices contain piezo materials that find mechanical force by converting mechanical energy into electrical energy. Various accelerometers with different axes and sensitivities are used. These accelerometers are ICP (Integrated Circuit Piezoelectric) type. We have enough Kistler brand 8742A5, 8742A10 and 8742A20 model accelerometers.
