Space travel with solar power

A huge solar sail unfolds in space and drives a satellite that explores the solar system. So-called solar sailing is not a vision for the future, but may soon be reality in space exploration. The institutes of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Braunschweig and Bremen are working together with the European Space Agency ESA and the Technical University of Braunschweig on the so-called Gossamer Project. The researchers want to prove that solar sailing is operational. The masts of the sail, the so-called booms, are being checked for their resilience with AICON's 3D coordinate measuring machine MoveInspect HR.


TubeInspect in the Aerospace Industry

Quality demands on tube manufacturing in the aerospace industry are considerably more stringent than in other industrial sectors. In order to determine the suitability of the optical tube measuring system TubeInspect for this sector, PFW Aerospace AG carried out an extensive measurement system analysis.


DPA in Aerospace

At Eurocopter Deutschland the component testing under burdening of solar panels is part of a vast standard testing routine. In this context, also parameters for stiffness and flatness of the panel are determined. For these measurements Eurocopter now relies on AICON's optical measurement system DPA.
