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.

Q.bloxx A105 CR Cryo Module with Extended Range
Cryo Technology is a rapidly growing market and therefore more and more new sensor kinds appear. A clear trend is that these cryogenic temperature sensors move to higher resistance. With Gantner’s cryo module – the Q.bloxx A105 CR – a measurement range of up to 25kohms is now possible. The module is available as standard DIN rail module, or as Q.brixx/Q.raxx with 4 times 4-pole-LEMO (ERA.1S.304.CLL).Read more...
Airbus Helicopters Chooses Gantner to Upgrade their Fatigue Test Cells
Airbus Helicopters (formerly Eurocopter Group) is a global helicopter manufacturing and support company. It is the largest in the industry in terms of revenues and turbine helicopter deliveries. With the growth and advancement of their product offer, Airbus Helicopters identified a need to upgrade their component test benches at their newly enhanced manufacturing location in Donauwörth, Germany.Read more...
Wendelstein 7-X Stellarator
After 9 years in construction, the stellarator (nuclear-fusion machine) of the Max Planck Institute in Greifswald generated plasma for the first time on December 10, 2015. The reactor had been gradually ramped up over the past 12 months. The event was given extensive coverage in the media. Gantner Instruments specially developed sensors for temperature and strain measurement for the project, which are otherwise unavailable on the market.Read more...
