Lansing, NY, September 10, 2013 -- ADC USA announced today that they received a contract from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), to design and build a state-of-the-art Experimental Test Range (ETR) Positioning System as part of an upgrade to a Radar Cross Section (RCS).
ADC is celebrating 17 years of delivering some of the most complex engineering systems to world-class research and scientific facilities, globally. Alexander Deyhim, President and CEO of ADC commented, “ADC has implemented major quality control upgrades and procedures over the last 4 years within our operation that has resulted in delivering some of the most sophisticated instruments on time, and within budget, meeting if not exceeding, highly demanding technical requirements. This contract especially coming from such a prestigious organization such as NASA, is another indication of the trust we are building with our clients.” We are delighted to be selected to design and develop cutting edge instruments in Lansing, NY, and deliver them to NASA.
"The Experimental Test Range is an advanced hi-tech system designed for performing antenna and electromagnetic scattering measurements," said Eric Van Every, Director of Operations at ADC. This system utilizes a test chamber with the absorber type and placement selected for optimum performance, turn-key control instrumentation for fast and efficient data collection and processing, and a bridge crane for efficient model handling.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is the agency of the United States government that is responsible for the nation's civilian space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research. For additional information, please visit the NASA web site at http://www.nasa.gov/ .
