Ready for Liftoff: Building NASA’s Space Shuttle Isolation System.

Selecting the proper vibration isolation system is crucial for aerospace engineers. Download our whitepaper to learn how we selected, implemented and evaluated NASA's Space Shuttle Mobile Launch Platform.


6 areas covered by the whitepaper:

  • Why a change in the Space Shuttle’s electric switchgear and advances in modern electronics led to the examination of the existing vibration isolation system.
  • How the Shuttle’s dynamic environment and mitigation goal were defined.
  • The analytic model used and how the most viable isolation system was determined.
  • A description of the final switchgear isolation system used.
  • Summary of input, qualification, model and measured results of the Shuttle’s launch.
  • The overall effectiveness of the vibration isolation system as measured during an actual Shuttle launch.
