Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) – Extreme impacts on the fastest shock test system.

The Challenge

Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) required a shock system to generate extreme impact events:

    • Maximum velocity change up to 150 ft./sec (45 m/sec).
    • Maximum acceleration amplitudes up to 25,000 g’s.
    • Requirements would lead to the fastest vertical shock system that Lansmont has built to date.

The Solution

  • Lansmont HSXX20 utilizes a unique, revolutionary new design feature—the “active” seismic base.
  • The active seismic is attached to a nitrogen‐charged piston and is accelerated upwards towards the falling table during the shock test.
