What is DFAT?

MSI-DFAT® provides DFAT® Services for acoustic testing of spacecraft. Direct field acoustic testing is a technique that can be used for acoustic testing aerospace structures and components. The methodology uses electrodynamic loudspeakers, arranged uniformly around the test article, to generate a diffuse and well controlled direct sound field at the surface of the unit under test.

Capabilities

The MSI-DFAT® System uses a building block approach to satisfy our client’s specific needs. The system is designed, built and operated by experienced and qualified audio engineers to ensure accuracy. MSI-DFAT® will perform the test on the spacecraft by a set of defined and documented procedures provided by MSI-DFAT® or to the client’s specifications.
