The Vertical Flight Society’s 75th Annual Forum & Technology Display is the world’s leading international technical event on vertical flight technology. Calspan Systems will be on hand in the Technology Display to showcase our cutting-edge engineering and manufacturing capabilities of complex aerospace hardware and prototype systems that support the future of vertical flight. This special 75th-anniversary event will span four days and include nearly 300 technical papers on every discipline from Acoustics to Unmanned Systems, as well as dozens of invited presentations and discussions by leaders in the military, government agencies and industry.
The four primary business areas we serve for aerospace hardware and prototype systems are:
Test Equipment and Systems, including prototype and test hardware, for rotary wing aircraft, fixed-wing aircraft, and missiles
Force Measurement Systems which includes the design and fabrication of precision balances for wind tunnel testing
Propulsion Systems with design and fabrication of turbomachinery test rigs and components for fans, compressors, turbines, and combustors
Marine Systems providing a multitude of different prototype components and systems to aid in product development
Calspan, a worldwide leader in the development of wind tunnel helicopter and Vertical Take-off and Landings (VTOL) systems, offers customers a total solution for research, design, and fabrication of components.
Over our rich history in prototype production and testing, we have developed and implemented unique fabrication methodologies such as core forming and machining, giving us the ability to fabricate complex composite structures. Our ISO 9001, AS9100 and Nadcap Composite Accreditations minimize fabrication variables and risk and often can decrease production time.
As a total service provider, we can assist in the design and fabrication of rotor test systems, and wind tunnel models, and provide assistance in testing those components with access to our transonic wind tunnel and precision balances.
