Bird Strike Testing Capabilities
Element's bird strike testing facility simulates the effects of an airborne bird strike and the resulting damage to aerospace products and components. Experts in our bird strike lab simulate impacts using a pneumatic cannon that can launch birds of weights of up to 8.0 pounds, and speeds up to 360 knots. Our facility is flexible, and our canon is adjustable, allowing us to make multiple shots in multiple locations while minimizing downtime and cost. High-speed video is available with speeds up to 100K frames per second.
