DTB is qualified to perform engineering and re-engineering work, as well as armament and munitions testing for the US Army

Recent Army Projects

  • Testing of helicopter aerospace parts for dimensional and metallurgical conformance to specified drawing requirements
  • Fatigue testing of helicopter aerospace parts to qualify alternate sources – each part was qualified by comparison, ensuring that the part manufactured by the alternate source exhibited similar lifetime, structural, and metallurgical properties as those supplied by the OEM
  • Evaluation of leaf springs for Army trucks for TACOM
  • Ballistic armor and weapons testing, including environmental, optical, and ballistic performance

DTB and the US Army

DTB’s testing facilities can subject your equipment to a variety of environmental conditions, such as temperature extremes, sand and dust, humidity, wind and rain exposure, and much more. We are fully equipped for testing to US Army Test Operation Procedures, MIL-STD-810, and ATPD-2352 for transparent armor. We can also design a unique testing profile to meet nearly any requirement.

DTB’s ballistic testing capabilities include .50 caliber and AP round range testing. We have won multiple contracts with various small arms and ammunition manufacturers to accelerate their development activities. We specialize in large unit testing work, including large chambers. Check out our T5500 with the head expander and a 3 in. displacement!

CH47-PartsDTB can perform EMI/EMC testing to all revision levels of MIL-STD-461. We offer exceptional radiated susceptibility (Method RS105) testing and now own the largest RS105 simulator in any US non-government test facility. This requirement is applicable to Army aircraft for safety critical equipment and subsystems that are located in an external installation. We understand the military’s need to ensure that critical equipment survives and/or works properly in extreme circumstances.

Our skilled staff is also qualified to perform engineering and re-engineering work, as well as armament and munitions testing, structural/fatigue testing, failure analysis, metallurgical analysis, and conformance inspection projects, as a prime or subcontractor. Give us a call today to learn more!

Hydraulic Test Stands

DTB builds capable, reliable, and accurate hydraulic test stands. The quality of each part is critical to the success of our Army’s mission. Our vast range of test systems and test stands include automated hydraulic pump and motor test stands, general purpose component test stands, automated calibration test systems, fuel component test stands, and gear box test stands – to name a few. If none of our listed test systems or test stands are quite what you are looking for, DTB can design a tailored test systems solution to meet your needs.
