DG’s fully integrated in-house electrical and environmental test facilities enable us to design and evaluate both prototype and production units quickly and inexpensively. All test equipment is calibrated to industry standards and meets military requirements, testing only on our own products.
Our test facilities include two outdoor Antenna test ranges and one rectangular anechoic chamber, as well as lightning direct effects, dynamics, and climatic labs. DG’s facility is also capable of supporting full-scale mock-up testing of rotary and fixed-wing aircraft sections.
- 2 anechoic test chambers
- 2 outdoor test ranges
- Modern vector network analyzers
- Network analyzers
- Mock-ups to test conformal antenna structures
Lightning Test at DG Facility
DG can conduct many environmental tests at our in-house Climatics and Dynamics Lab. This saves the time and additional costs associated with outsourcing to another lab facility whenever a DG product is in any of the following phases: • Initial Environmental Confidence Testing (during the design) • Pre-qualification Robustness Testing • Final Environmental Qualification
DG can conduct in-house environmental tests any time we have the need to subject our products to the extremes specified in aviation standards like DO-160. Environmental tests include:
- Low Temperature (Both Ground Survival and Operating Extremes)
- High Temperature (Both Ground Survival and Operating Extremes)
- Temperature Variation
- Vibration (Sine, Random, Sine on Random)
- Fluids Susceptibility
- Salt Fog
- Classic Shock
- Side Load
- Static Load
