Space is an exceptionally challenging industry for new product development and quality control. Equipment often has to be lightweight, robust and durable because it is subject to extreme environments, including exposure to extreme heat and cold cycling, ultra-vacuum, high energy radiation, and shock and vibration of launch. Extensive testing ensures that the final product will achieve its intended purpose while in Earth’s orbit.
To learn more about Gantner Instruments’ latest innovations in data acquisition hardware and software we cordially invite you to send a request for a meeting with Stephan Ploegman.
Gantner Instruments offers data acquisition solutions for space testing that border on the limits of the possibility, such as temperature measurement using a Pt100 sensor with a stability of 0.02° C/K. We select superior stability components for our strain gage measurement, which guarantee optimal results due to their ingenious circuitry. We can accurately measure frequencies from less than 1 Hz to 1 MHz. And we measure strain, pressure, acceleration, and temperature in an environmental test chamber under cryogenic and ultra-vacuum conditions using our fiber optic measurement technology.
ROCKET ENGINE TESTING
Thrust, pressure, temperature, fuel flow and vibration characterization.
SPACE SIMULATION TESTING
Environmental testing including solar simulation, thermal vacuum, and thermo-elastic deformation testing.
STATIC STRUCTURAL TESTING
Verification of static strength and determination of the load distribution across the rocket structure.
Simulate the load conditions that a payload must survive during the rocket launch.

IPERMON – Innovative Performance Monitoring System for Improved Reliability and Optimized Levelized Cost of Electricity
Currently, a vast amount of research institutions and organizations are focusing on ways to improve the operation, reliability and consequently the output of PV systems. An important aspect yet to be targeted remains the procedural and standardized approach to calculate accurately the factors behind the various performance loss mechanisms, while also detecting and diagnosing potential failures at early stages or before occurrence. Identification of degradation and failure modes at preliminary stages is important as these mechanisms directly influence the performance, lifetime and reliability of PV technology.Read more...
