Endevco

Aerospace

Endevco's complete range of extreme environment accelerometers, microphones, airborne amplifiers and pressure transducers are used during ground test, flight test, and on-board monitoring in aircraft and spacecraft. We play a significant role as new platforms and launch vehicles are developed, certified and placed into production. Our design and manufacturing engineers recognize that the world of transducer technology centers around engineering tradeoffs. Generally, the compromises are between the performance characteristics of the transducer and its environmental requirements or the physical constraints imposed by the phenomenon being measured. For aerospace testing, typical performance requirements are high sensitivity, wide-band frequency response and wide dynamic range. Our sensors are used in applications such as ground vibration testing, flutter tests, static and dynamic loading tests, and jet engine and rocket engine testing. Common environmental challenges are high and low temperature extremes, shock, vibration, moisture and thermal transients. Physical constraints are typically size and weight. Consequently, to meet the unique challenges faced by many of our customers, Endevco routinely designs custom products using a wide range of technology platforms.
