Aerospace leader Lockheed Martin has expanded its vibration measurement capabilities for testing satellite systems, with a 450-channel PULSE™ vibro-acoustic data acquisition system.
Supplied by Bruel and Kjaer, 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.
