DTB and the US Air Force
The mission of every pilot in the US Air Force is to fly, fight and win. Our airmen not only rely on skills and courage, but also on the delivery of the latest technologies and innovations. That’s where DTB comes in.
Like the men and women in the US Air force, we also have to be constantly alert and on top of the engineering and test mission at hand. We strive to the highest level of proficiency and accuracy in every test we perform. Integrity first, Service before self, and Excellence in all they do, are the three core values that each person in the US Air Force stands for.
These principles are also embedded in DTB’s 50+ years of dependable engineering and testing experience. We have always worked closely with the Air Force, supporting all the technologically advanced testing services they need, under one roof 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
DTB is the premier independent test resource for aerospace testing to
MIL-STD-810 for Acceleration,
Explosive conditions, and
Vibration, or EMI/EMC and Power to MIL STD-461 or MIL-STD-704.
For a list of other military standards that we test to, please visit our
MIL-STD Document Library or consult with our engineering staff to determine a unique test or design solution for a unique soldier situation or mission.
For over forty years DTB’s
windblast 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.
Our aerospace testing capabilities have benefited a long list of Air Force platforms, including:
Fixed Wing & Rotorcraft
- F-35 (JSF)
