Ground Testing of Airborne Equipment

SOME of the delicate components of airborne equipment have to withstand very high accelerations during certain phases of flight. There are also g‐operated devices which must react within a very brief interval when subjected to g above a certain value. The testing of such components during development presents a difficult problem because of the extremely short periods during which the required conditions obtain. A neat method of obtaining reliable answers to such problems has been devised by Wilkinson Sword Ltd., Southfield Road, London, W.4, in association with Graviner Manufacturing Co. Ltd. at their Colnbrook, Slough, Bucks, factory, where development of temperature‐ and acceleration‐sensitive components for airborne equipment is carried out.
