Serving the Aerospace and Defense Industry

At the Cutting-Edge of a Cutting-Edge Industry

With the complexity of modern aerospace systems, stringent safety standards, and rapidly emerging trends and technologies, the aerospace and defense industry is facing a time of expeditious change. These industry trends shape aerospace manufacturers’ testing needs, growth objectives, and overall business goals. The reality is that aging aerospace facilities aren’t prepared to keep up with these rapid trends. Organizations seeking a competitive edge in the industry aim to achieve sustainable practices and regulatory compliance or explore new avenues in electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft and space exploration. This demands testing facilities that are future-proofed for innovative solutions.

Over the years, ACS has delivered test equipment and controls projects for commercial aircraft OEMs, tier suppliers, and defense contractors in the aerospace market. Our project management expertise has been crucial to the success of hundreds of test cell projects worldwide. Additionally, our extensive experience with powertrain and fuel systems provides a significant advantage for any project, ensuring our clients have access to the tools they need for a capital project from start to finish.
