Airbus Services is pleased to offer a range of Engineering and Design solutions, including Environmental Testing of equipment and systems

For decades, Airbus has acquired an unique expertise in performing a wide range of environmental simulation tests to demonstrate the certification of aircraft equipment and systems against international certification standards (e.g. RTCA DO160), being then representative of the most harsh flight and operations conditions like overpressure & vacuum, wide temperature range, thermal shock, high humidity range, corrosion, etc.

 

Climatic Testing

Thanks to dedicated test facilities, we are able to handle extra large samples of equipment and even entire aircraft sections, for instance:

  • Multi Climate Chamber (11.5m x 7.8m x 7.1m) where we can handle 2 different temperature zones (+5°C/+50°C and -60°C/+50°C) with relative humidity of 5 to 100%rH @ 24°C
  • Vacuum chamber (5m x 2.8m x 2.6m) where we can achieve temperature range of -70°C to +80°C, low pressure of 115 hPa, relative humidity max 95 % @ 75°C and rapid decompression from 752.6 hPa to 116 hPa within 15 s
  • Other means/chambers available

 

Electromagnetic Testing

Through those decades we have also developed a world wide recognised expertise in the field of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing that allow us to offer a wide range of tests to qualify and certify equipment and systems against aeronautics standards (RTCA DO-160) and other industry standards:

  • EMC and High-intensity Radiated Field
  • Lightning Indirect Effects
  • Power, Harness and Shielding

We perform those tests in our laboratories equipped with large size chambers:

  • 2 Anechoid chambers (12m x 6,7m x 6,5m with 3m turntable and 5,6m x 3,7m x 2,9m)
  • Shielded room (8m x 4m x 2,5m)
  • Reverberation chamber (4m x 2m x 2,5m)

We can also perform those tests on premise in the frame for example of aircraft working parties, data transfer measurements, certification, etc.
