DTB and the US Air Force

For over 50 years of dependable engineering and testing, DTB has worked closely with the Air Force, supporting all of the technologically advanced testing services required, under one roof. DTB is the premier independent test resource for aerospace testing to MIL-STD-810 for Acceleration, Altitude, Climatics, Dynamics, Explosive Conditions, and Vibration, or EMI/EMC and Power to MIL STD-461 or MIL-STD-704.

For over forty years, DTB’s windblast testing facility has been able to evaluate aircrew safety during emergency aircraft egress. By producing a high velocity air flow we can simulate velocities experienced in actual ejections from the aircraft at well over 600 knots. The effects on the test item are recorded with high speed video cameras and electronic data transducers for subsequent analysis.

DTB also designs and manufactures a wide range of aerospace test equipment to support military maintenance and repair organizations and OEMs in the defense market. DTB Test Systems feature simplicity in operation while repeatedly performing complex tests over extended periods of use.

Our equipment is designed to meet production goals while minimizing maintenance and repair downtime. You will find that our test stand products can help to utilize scarce maintenance and repair resources much more efficiently.
