Pyroshock tests

Pyroshock tests are necessary during development of space components to validate their functionality following launch stage changes and the high-level shocks they are subjected to during launches.

In order to provide different validation options for these stresses, CTA has developed in its facilities different pyroshock benches depending on the mass and geometry of the component to be tested as well as the level to be reached, either with electrodynamic vibrator, gas gun or pendulum.

In addition, at CTA we have different systems for monitoring and acquiring the responses obtained during the tests.
