Testing for Safety of Aircraft & Mass Transit Seating

Calspan’s state of the art Sled Test Facility features two ServoSleds, the most capable sleds in the industry.

Having access to this latest Sled Technology allows manufacturers of mass transit seating (aircraft, railcar, bus) to test in an efficient & effective manner to specific crash pulse requirements. The ability to control the crash pulse through servo controlled braking system allows Calspan to deliver high-accuracy & highly repeatable test results to its customers.
