Future iterations and engine designs can progress armed with a critical mass of data and Gantner Instruments’ support. Colossus has an extensive network of sensors deployed around the system. These sensors provide the students with real-time temperature, pressure, and force data from various test stand components. Gantner Instruments provided the students at SEDS UCSD with a reliable and high-fidelity Q.series data acquisition system to acquire quality data from these sensors. The Q.series DAQ system’s superior flexibility allows the students to program automated responses to errors and actuates the fire safety valves to prevent system failures.
We at Gantner Instruments are proud of the accomplishments of SEDS UCSD and continue to look forward to the progress made by this innovative student organization!
