SPACEX CREW SAFETY TESTING

MEASURING LAUNCH & LANDING FORCES ON CREW DRAGON CAPSULE

The Challenge:

  • Collecting physical measurements in the extreme environment indicative of space travel
  • Capturing head, neck and spine loads and forces astronauts may experience during launch, flight and landing
  • Support multiple SpaceX Crew Dragon missions, as well as Blue Origin and NASA
  • Meet strict size, mass, and power constraints for payload
  • Data acquisition equipment & sensors that can withstand the rigors of flight, including to and from the International Space Station (ISS)

 

The Solution:

  • Hybrid III-50M Anthropomorphic Test Device (Ripley) embedded with miniature, rugged DTS data acquisition systems (DAS) and sensors
  • Modular and portable DAS and sensors that maintain mass and CoG
  • DAS that supports a variety of channel counts and sensor inputs including IEPE, plus built-in sensor options
  • Positioning DAS near the sensors to eliminate cable runs to improve data quality and create a more realistic human analog
  • Store in place reliability, data writes directly to non-volatile flash memory
  • Easy system set-up with intuitive software
