(Pyro-) Shock Testing

We use explosives to investigate how devices react when exposed to high shock loads which cannot be tested via impact tests. IABG has special test equipment which can be used to generate high shock loads in accordance with customer specifications.

In order to apply specific charges to individual devices, customer-defined shock response spectra (shock response spectra - SRS) or pseudo velocity values can be generated reproducibly and evaluated with our efficient measurement technology tools.
IABG executes shock and pyro shock tests of military components as well as aeronautical and space vehicle equipment.

Measurement equipment:

  • High shock load acceleration sensors (range: up to 60’000 g or 200’000 g)
  • Laser Doppler Vibrometer
  • Data acquisition up to 1 MHz
