What we have

To maximise operational readiness for your (military) aircraft? Regardless if it concerns fixed wing aircraft (fighters, trainers, transport, maritime patrol aircraft) or helicopters? Or to save costs related to line maintenance, hard time component lives, repairs and modifications? All while maintaining or increasing the currently established SAFETY level?

The knowledge and facilities to develop and conduct on-board loads and usage measurement campaigns for all sorts of military assets, e.g. aircraft, helicopters, engines, landing gears and all sorts of additional support (sub)systems. We also have the necessary hardware, expertise and experience to store, process, analyse and report relevant findings derived from the measured data. For this purpose we apply tools such as counting techniques, modal analysis, static and fatigue strength calculations, crack growth modelling, loads verification, FEM analyses, calculation of dynamic behaviour, etc.

Our expertise has been applied to: F-16 (Netherlands, Belgium, Chile, USA), Lynx SH-14D (Netherlands), CH-47D Chinook (Netherlands), AH-64D Apache (Netherlands), P-3C Orion (Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Brazil, Portugal), C-130H (Netherlands), NH-90 (Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Australia, Sweden, Finland, Norway).
