Commercial / Business Aerospace Testing Services
We can provide you with following expert aerospace testing services for subsystems, commercial and business aircrafts:
You can count on and profit from our proven aerospace testing methods of testing aerospace structures and components for fixed wing and rotorcraft applications. We cover proof of concept testing, conformity inspections, and complete
RTCA/DO-160 certification testing to the latest revision.
We have extensive test facilities, teams of experienced aerospace testing engineers and support staff and round-the-clock operation to complete your test requirements quickly and keep programs on schedule. We specialize in large unit testing on our T4000 or on our new T5500 with head expander + 3 inch displacement.
Our aerospace engineering experience runs the gamut from
non destructive inspection with a full in house climate controlled
dimensional lab and metallurgical laboratory, to failure analysis,
in-flight instrumentation and data acquisition
to alternate source qualification testing
complete with design engineering, fabrication and final approval.
So, let's get your aerospace testing done quickly and efficiently.

Aircraft Testing to RTCA/DO-160
We can test your aircraft to all the latest RTCA/DO-160 criteria. We are A2LA accredited for RTCA/DO-160 testing, and have large anechoic test chambers, with high current DC and AC sources available.
We can perform Emissions and Susceptibility testing to 40 GHz. Our equipment can generate Radiated Susceptibility fields well in excess of 200 V/m across the frequency range of 10 kHz to 40 GHz.
Our state-of-the-art lightning testing is now part of our RTCA/DO-160 capabilities.
RTCA/DO-160 testing covers standard procedures and environmental test criteria for testing airborne electronic equipment, (avionics), for the entire spectrum of aircraft, from light general aviation aircraft and helicopters, Business Jet and VIP aircraft through Regional and Commercial aircraft.
Coordinated with EUROCAE (European Organization for Civil Aviation Equipment), RTCA/DO-160D and its European twin, EUROCAE/ED-14D, are worded identically.
Dayton T. Brown, Inc. now has the capability to perform Voltage Spike testing to the requirements of Airbus ABD0100.1.8 and AMD24C. Voltage Spikes in aircraft power systems can be caused by electric motors starting and stopping and switching of power busses, Auxiliary Power Units (APU) and engine generators.
Susceptibility of avionic equipment is becoming increasingly crucial as fly-by-wire systems and electric motor drives proliferate. This high voltage test is required for electronic equipment intended for Airbus aircraft including the A350 and the A400M. DTB can perform testing on multiple power input cables simultaneously as specified in ABD0100.1.8.
