We provide military and civil aerospace manufacturers all the design, testing and qualification processes.

We work with aerospace companies from the initial design with our Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®) services to support them through the complex nature of qualification testing of aerospace components and deliver against airframe manufacturers’ imposed qualification milestones. Our ESQ expertise from testing thousands of different products every year and our industry leading capacity allows us to help companies mitigate the risk of failing to meet critical deadlines such as safety of flight, and of receiving punitive measures for late delivery.

TRaC is UKAS accredited to BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005, signatories to SC21 and has the largest capacity for aerospace EMC and environmental testing in the UK, testing over a thousand aerospace products each year across six testing centres. We are also able to deliver a unique range of wider testing and validation often required by aerospace manufacturers during qualification, such as:

  • Indirect Lightning Testing
  • High Intensity Radiated Field (HIRF) Testing
  • Altitude Testing
  • Engineering Simulation & Finite Element Analysis
  • Explosive Atmosphere

This makes TRaC the natural choice of testing partner for aerospace companies when they are looking to develop and take their products to market.

Our expertise in testing and validation helps the entire supply chain demonstrate the durability and effectiveness of its products in the challenging aerospace environment in which they will be asked to operate, and ensures that products qualify against aerospace test standards, such as:

Civil aerospace:

  • RTCA DO-160

Defence aerospace:

  • DEF STAN 59-411
  • DEF STAN 59-41
  • DEF STAN 00-35
  • MIL-STD  461
  • MIL-STD 704 series
  • MIL-STD 810
