Although aviation technology allows aircraft to avoid many storms and other dangers, bird ingestion still causes millions of dollars in plane crashes and aircraft damage. Bird strike testing helps mitigate the risks of danger to human life and equipment.
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.
Bird strike testing is an important part of aerospace product qualification testing. Our lab is a single-source provider for environmental simulation and qualification testing for manufacturers, developers and suppliers of aerospace equipment.
