Shock testing of products and materials determines to what degree the items can physically and functionally withstand a relatively infrequent, short time, moderately high level force impulse that would be encountered in handling, transportation, and service environments. From electrical components to black boxes, antennas to hydraulic components, material samples to complete structures, NTS can tailor shock testing to virtually all your requirements.
In the last 40 years of shock testing, NTS has successfully tested all types of objects at extreme temperatures, shock when induced by gunfire, in simulated catapult launch/arrested landing situations, per MIL-STD-331, and in a variety of special cases. Multi-channel, wideband data acquisition systems produce documentation, wave shapes, and spectrum presentations. Exotic profiles are our specialty. NTS performs pyro-shock, mechanical shock, transportation, and shipboard shock to the MIL-STD-810 and MIL-S-901. Our shock testing capabilities include handling drop testing, drop towers able to deliver peak acceleration in excess of 20,000g (196,000 m/s2), and free-fall and variable force test techniques that produce shocks up to 15,000g (147,000 m/s2). From air-gun generated shock, to drop tests of up to 80 ft (24m), to hydroshock, pyrotechnic, ordnance-induced, transportation, or bench handling, NTS can provide it all.
