ATS offers precision motion control systems for all aeronautical testing applications. Our systems feature very high accuracy and user-friendly control interfaces to maximize test automation and efficiency.
Examples of motion control applications at ATS include:
- Powered, electrically-driven wind tunnel model components and surfaces
- Attitude positioning for custom wind tunnel model mounts/balances
- Wind tunnel flow-control devices
- Mechanical testing equipment
Our miniaturized wind tunnel model surface control system can be integrated inside most model designs. Surface angular deflections can be quickly adjusted and controlled to within a small fraction of a degree.
Exclusive, highly rigid ATS actuator design allows most applications to employ affordable drive systems based on stepper motors. Systems with higher power and/or dynamic requirements may employ servo motor or hydraulic systems.
Systems optionally may receive control inputs from customer equipment and output positional data at speeds up to 100 Hz.
