Aerospace Product Testing - Clark Testing

Aerospace Product Testing

For over 28 years, Clark Testing has been a strategic provider of RTCA/DO-160 testing services to the global network of Aerospace Equipment Manufacturers. Our broad array of capabilities enables us to establish the extreme operating conditions to conduct product qualification services for the aerospace industry.

RTCA/DO-160 compliant testing services consist of: vibration, shock, thermal, thermal shock, vacuum, altitude, acoustics, modal analysis, dynamics response, structural integrity, corrosion, metals analysis, failure analysis, hydraulics, EMC / EMI compliance, oil, lubrication and grease analysis.

Along with the RTCA/DO-160 environmental testing services, Clark’s structural lab provides structural load testing of aircraft components such as fixed wing, fuselage and rotary equipment. Our unique infrastructure of over 250,000 sq. ft. of lab area enables Clark to conduct structural testing of large aerospace components such entire wing and tail sections of aircraft.

Most Aerospace test service providers have similar testing capabilities and equipment; however, Clark Testing separates itself by having the top technical and engineering talent with many years of experience in the aerospace industry. Our team of engineers and technicians recognizes the complexity of product development, the criticality of timing and the importance of forming a collaborative relationship to achieve our customers’ objectives.

In addition to RTCA/DO-160 testing, Clark also provides MIL-Standard testing services all of which are covered under the auspices of its independently audited 17025-2017 Quality Program.

Testing Services

Thermal Aging

Clark Dynamics has the environmental chambers to accelerate aging and validate functional performance for longer product life expectancy. Clark can accommodate large component aging for extended periods simulating containment internal conditions as high as 170C.
