AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY / ADJUSTMENT OF COMPONENTS

Measuring task / Goal:

  • Two radar platforms must be aligned in one plane and precisely parallel to the reference platform
  • Two sophisticated navigation instruments must be aligned in one plane and precisely parallel to the reference platform
  • The „Stall-indicator“, a special warning device, must be precisely set in a predefined angle in relation to the reference platform.

The measurements must be performed while other teams are also working on the same aircraft.

INCLINATION MEASURING OF A SATELLITE DURING A SYSTEM TEST IN A TEMPERATURE VACUUM CHAMBER

Measuring task / Goal:
Level all induvidual systems of the satellite to each other. The defined satellite frame point serves as horizontal reference point. The inclination of this horizontal reference point has to be within ±0.001 mm/m.

CONTROLLED CRADLE TO LIFT AND PLACE PAYLOAD FAIRING OF A ROCKET

Measuring task / Goal:
The balancing and weight distribution cross at the head of the cradle should be monitored in both axes. Deviation from horizontal alignment must be visualized at the cranes control panel. Thresholds in each direction limit maximum allowed misalignment. Overshooting the limits must activate an alarm and disrupt the lifting action. The display unit should facilitate manual corrections of the centre of gravity alignment by joystick. Failures of the monitoring system must be signalled by alarm condition.

MEASUREMENT AND CERTIFICATION OF THE TORQUE-RESISTANCE ON AN ENGINE-SHAFT

Measuring task / Goal:
The torsion of an engine-axis mounted on a testing-rig with a base of 12m x 12m has to be measured precisely and put in relation to the applied torque.
