Aerospace & Naval

Response Dynamics has provided vibration and acoustic testing and engineering consulting services to the aerospace and naval industries for over 30 years. We have worked for BAE Flight Systems, DRS Technologies, G.E. Aircraft, Pratt & Whitney Aircraft, TRW, Versatron, Rix Industries, Rolls Royce, Honeywell, Brandywine, General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin and many more.

We perform flight vibration testing of aircraft and components, such as performing vibration measurements on F-15 fighter jets during high-g maneuvers such as barrel rolls with afterburners.


We also perform ground vibration testing (GVT) of aircraft, satellites and components thereof, such as performing modal analysis testing of helicopter engine/frame systems, and of jet engines.


We design and perform complex testing of critical aerospace systems to characterize and improve their vibration robustness, such as perfoming vibration-induced phase noise testing of critical time base systems (and working with their R&D team to develop and test design improvements), and performing vibration sensitivity measurements on tiny gyroscopes.


We perform modal testing of scale model systems for improved correlation with wind tunnel testing of scale model aircraft.

We offer much more that just test and measurement services, we also work with the engineering teams to identify and implement improvements to achieve superior vibration robustness.


We have often found problems in existing test setups and have saved our clients significant time in getting their products qualified. Our experience with instrumentation, data collection, and digital signal processing is a valuable resource. With our extensive experimental and theoretical background we can quickly characterize a problem, develop a solution, and test/prototype solutions.
