"The research project was 100 percent successful. There’s no question—we wouldn’t be doing these kinds of tests without National Instruments technology. All data was collected accurately and then processed and stored as required. Due to the size and cost of this one experiment, everything has to work perfectly every time you push the ‘start’ button, and NI hardware and LabVIEW helped us do exactly that."

NI provides tools to help engineers develop dynamic structural test systems for aerodynamic, impact, vibration, blast, and ballistic tests. Dynamic structural tests are characterized by fast changes that require high-speed and high-reliability measurements of a variety of sensor types such as strain gages, pressure transducers, and accelerometers. NI hardware and software offer a flexible, high-performance solution used in the dynamic structural testing of airplanes, helicopters, automobiles, electronics, materials, and more.
