National Technical Systems Develops New Data Acquisition, Measurement Tool

CALABASAS, CA and ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- National Technical Systems, Inc. (NTS), a leading provider of testing and engineering services, announced today that it has developed a new data acquisition product, based on National Instruments hardware, that allows aerospace and other customers to collect and portray data in real time and store it for display, analysis and certification purposes. The new, durable and fully portable product, called DynamicDAQ™, was conceived and developed by NTS software architects at its Albuquerque facility who design measurement tools for customers in aerospace and other research and manufacturing industries.

DynamicDAQ, which was developed on a National Instruments (NI) cDAQ hardware platform, can be scaled to fit data acquisition requirements for large (PXI) and small systems related to aerospace test stands, "iron birds" and other sources of complex data sets. DynamicDAQ can measure and monitor such things as pressure, temperature, voltage, current, position and a plethora of statistics, noted Brian G. Shea, NTS LabVIEW Architect.

"Our new DynamicDAQ tool can measure hundreds of temperatures and pressure readings and display them on a screen in real time," said Shea, the lead product developer. "We have many clients who need just what this tool provides: calibrated data reported in standard formats and archivable for record keeping and certification purposes. This solution can also be customizable and we believe it offers aerospace-related customers, test laboratories and researchers a cost-effective measurement tool that benefits from ongoing product evolution."
