MTS Awarded Contracts Valued At $2.5 Million For New Electric Systems
MTS will utilize electric technologies to design an improved helicopter pilot training system, featuring more realistic motion simulation. In a separate contract, MTS will provide its proprietary damper test system to a leading automotive supplier to enhance ride comfort.
"MTS is committed to developing more energy-efficient solutions to meet today's testing and simulation challenges, leveraging electric technologies where possible," states
Realistic Helicopter Motion Simulation
To help construct an authentic environment for pilot training, MTS' wholly owned subsidiary,
Smoother-riding, Quieter Vehicles
Higher ride comfort expectations across all vehicle categories are driving increased interest in noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) testing. Historically, louder internal combustion engines in conventional vehicles masked noises that are now easily heard in high-end and electric vehicles. Shock absorbers, or dampers, are a source of noise that can transmit into the passenger compartment and sound especially amplified in an electric or luxury vehicle. The higher frequency testing capabilities of the new electric MTS Model 853 Damper Test System will allow manufacturers to accurately measure how damper noise impacts ride comfort, including in electric vehicles. As a result, manufacturers will be able to save product development time and cost by discovering earlier if the damper design will contribute too much unwanted noise to the ride experience. With the new damper test system, manufacturers can design components that minimize noise, vibration and harshness to meet the ride comfort demands of today's consumers.
