Strain Gage Sensors and DAQ Systems in Space
Measuring Aerodynamic Forces, Aircraft Wing Fatigue, and More
Micro-Measurements provides premier aviation, military, and space solutions. For decades, our strain gages sensors, DAQ systems, and related accessories have been a vital and trusted resource for aerospace engineers. In rocket engines, jet engines, and other aerospace and defense applications, our strain gage products can enable all of the following:
- Accurate measurement of aerodynamic forces
- Tests of aircraft wing fatigue
- Evaluation of material properties
- Component and sub-assembly tests
- In-flight testing and predictive maintenance
- Health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS)
- Flight-critical systems
- High frequency / energy tests
Though they are now used in hundreds of applications, the creation of foil strain gages was a revolution driven directly from a UK aircraft manufacturer. Today, Micro-Measurements strain gage sensors and DAQ systems measure aerodynamic forces and provide stress analysis for aerospace programs around the world. Our strain gages have even flown successful missions from the Earth's atmosphere to the far reaches of outer space.
Micro-Measurements strain gage sensors can survive and thrive in harsh environments — including deep space — and are supported by our in-house technical expertise and one-stop-shop product range.
