Celebrating Aviation History in the U.S.

Flying high in the sky, each day more than 45 thousand planes are crisscrossing more than 29 million miles of United States airspace. Flight might be commonplace now, but for hundreds of years the reality of taking to the sky was only a dream. November is National Aviation History Month, a time dedicated to exploring, […]

Buzzing Bees are Adding an Electric Charge to the Atmosphere

When heading to space, electric discharges can kill a mission in a matter of seconds. Charge buildup can come from several sources, including precipitation. That includes rain, snow, sleet and even dust. At EMA, we simulate internal and external charging as well as electrostatic discharge. According to new research, there may be another source of […]

Are you Protecting your Wind Turbine Blades Effectively?

What would you do if you watched one of your wind turbine blades go up in flames after being struck by lightning? Watch what happens when a wind turbine is struck by lightning here. The damage that a lightning strike can cause to a wind turbine can be detrimental if the proper testing isn’t performed […]

GNSS Receiver

A Measurement Based Approach to Avoid GNSS Interference

GNSS receivers play a critical role in commercial and military systems. They can be found in a myriad of devices and platforms including phones, watches, drones, tractors, survey equipment, automobiles, airplanes, satellites, missiles, and ships. When GNSS receivers fail, the impact ranges from nuisance scenarios such as an incorrect distance for your latest training run […]

Space Environment and Radiation Effects (SERE) Chamber

EMA® SERE ESD Chamber

The space environment is dynamic, complex, and harsh. The primary cause of risk for components and spacecraft in this environment is due to the energetic charged particles emitted by the sun resulting in charging. If proper consideration is not taken, catastrophic effects can lead to component or even mission failure. Thus, it is important to […]

EMA KART Project

KART Wing Simulation Final Report

Since the loss of TWA Flight 800 in 1996, government airworthiness regulators such as the FAA have required aircraft manufacturers to demonstrate that the aircraft wing fuel systems do not experience catastrophic ignition events, even when considering failure modes. The result has been that engineers must determine the current distribution throughout the aircraft fuel tanks […]
