Space systems boost aerospace test abilities


Lockheed Martin has expanded its vibration measurement capabilities for testing satellite systems, with a 450-channel PULSETM vibro-acoustic data-acquisition system.

Supplied by Brüel & Kjær, the system is based on standard, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) PULSE LAN-XI data-acquisition hardware. The modular hardware allows individual modules to be used freely, as standalone front-ends or collectively in frame-based configurations, making it suitable for testing large structures such as satellites and spacecraft.

The high number of channels supported, high data-sampling frequencies, tight phase matching between channels, and the ability to handle wide dynamic range inputs, all make PULSE ideal for large aerospace systems.

The system’s self-test and verification tools are dedicated to high-channel-count systems, ensuring reliable performance even in the most complex configurations. The system also provides a dedicated, streamlined workflow to simplify system setup, data recording, monitoring, and post-processing analysis.
