When calibrating and verifying thirty inertial measurement units (IMUs) at the same time, one catastrophic failure can result in a costly retesting of the entire batch. If one bad IMU is allowed to impact all the others, the efficiency of simultaneous testing suffers. As one manufacturer planned its process, it relied on Ideal Aerosmith to make IMU testing as efficient as possible.
Precision inertial testing is not a process that is easy to scale up. However, it is much less challenging when you work with the experienced team at Ideal Aerosmith. As one customer was pleased to learn, with innovation and ingenuity, it’s possible to increase throughput without sacrificing quality.
The more that humans venture into space, either with manned or unmanned missions, the more important telemetry becomes to our long-term success. We need spacecraft to send information back to earth so that we can capitalize on our success and learn from our mistakes. To that end, an important player in the burgeoning private spaceflight industry recently worked with Ideal Aerosmith’s Marius Gheorghe and his team to overcome an important challenge – how to transmit and interpret massive quantities of test data at a rate that pushed the limits of modern technology.
