Case Study

force measurement for space travel

Space travel is one of the most intriguing pursuits in modern culture and enormous investments have been made to reach the dream of navigating the final frontier. From government to private entities such as SpaceX and Blue Origin, the colonization of celestial bodies is becoming a real possibility, maybe even in our lifetime. However, what most people don’t think about when discussing the journey into space is the vast amount of different technologies that go into developing a spacecraft. This case study provides insight into how force measurement and Interface play a large role in the development of spacecrafts. It includes a brief overview of the customer challenge and examples of Interface solutions used to optimize spacecraft and other aerospace product designs.
