Bruel and Kjaer system aids satellite launch tests
Bruel and Kjaer
Data acquisition and vibration test system
Bruel and Kjaer is to supply its replacement data acquisition and vibration test system to Brazilian space research organisation INPE for satellite launch simulation and qualification testing.
Vibration, shock and acoustic fatigue testing is used to simulate the environment experienced during satellite launch.
The data acquisition and vibration test system is based on Bruel and Kjaer's LAN-XI data acquisition and Pulse analysis platform.
The system will simultaneously record data from hundreds of high-frequency vibration channels, provide the real-time analysis of all channels during vibration/acoustic tests and deliver the shock response analysis of recorded data.
Recent developments within Brüel and Kjær’s Flightops flight-track monitoring service have added the capability to display weather radar image overlays and real-time ASDI data that will assist operations staff with tactical decisions.
Bruel and Kjaer is to provide Thales Alenia Space with an LDS vibration shaker system for the mechanical vibration and shock testing of satellites.
Bruel and Kjaer has launched the Noise Sentinel Mining System, a noise management system designed for use by mine operators.
Bruel and Kjaer's Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System (Anoms) has been chosen as part of a noise and flight monitoring project at Copenhagen Airport.
Bruel and Kjaer has announced that its Type 2260 sound-level meter has now left the production line.
