Dynamic Sled Testing

At Calspan Sled Testing, we combine state-of-the-art equipment with an experienced engineering team to ensure high-tier data acquisition for customers. Our new Sled facility holds industry-leading ServoSleds allowing us to pulse match your most severe crash pulses for superior test data in your development process.

Calspan’s facility can perform impacts in any direction, any angle you require. No matter the test, the two ServoSleds meet the most stringent and confidential test requirements. We utilize the right equipment and tools to test efficiently with minimal downtime.

Our sled team has been running tests for over 50 years resulting in one of the most experienced groups of project engineers. The team guides customers through the entire testing process to ensure reliable, repeatable results occur. Producing anything other than top-tier data is inconsistent with the Calspan way.
