The aerospace industry relies on precise measurements and system integrity to ensure quality, safety, and performance. Additionally, the industry operates under stringent requirements that demand extensive testing, measurement, and calibration of critical components and design elements.
Therefore, it is no surprise that safety, accuracy, and efficiency in all processes are paramount to help minimize risks and costly failures. As such, continuous and accurate calibration is necessary to provide traceability and comply with quality control regulations.
What is the Aerospace Industry?
The aerospace industry is a global collective of both private corporations and public institutions focused on research, technology, and manufacturing of diverse products related to travel and exploration of the earth’s atmosphere, surrounding space, and beyond.
Although a relatively new industry, its many communications, research, and space exploration applications have made it a leading global enterprise. Aerospace companies are responsible for designing and manufacturing satellites, telescopes, spacecraft, and propulsion motors that enable humanity to go beyond the limits of our planet.
Commercial space travel is perhaps the most captivating application of the industry. With innovative companies such as SpaceX, which recently relocated to Texas and has made several successful manned trips to the International Space Station, and Blue Origin, which promises to make space vacations a reality, the future is looking bright for the aerospace industry.
The Need to Calibrate
There is no other industry where the cost of product flaws and failure is as costly as it is for the aerospace sector.
Satellite manufacturing mismeasurements can result in the loss of millions of dollars, and a spacecraft fuselage or instrument failure can result in incalculable loss of life and halt the progress of a program for years.
That is where calibration and certification play a critical role. Following a strict maintenance and quality assurance schedule where you routinely have equipment calibrated, adjusted, or replaced is vital to comply with the industry’s stringent regulations.
Calibration will not only ensure your measurements are accurate and precise, but it will also extend the life of your instruments, saving you time and money over the years.
