Across the Aerospace Industry, many legacy Data Acquisition Systems (DAQs) were originally designed for a specific application and were not intended to be modified from their original design or to be used as versatile multi-functional systems. These systems were often built by third party integrators and intended to serve the unique testing requirements on a project-by-project basis. Historically this has made test and measurement cumbersome and expensive for many manufacturers. Cutting edge DAQ systems that exist today have been able to overcome the trend of clunky, single-service platforms by embedding versatility within the hardware and software of modern solutions.
This is where innovation shines and DEWESoft takes center stage with flexible, versatile, and robust data acquisition hardware and software that makes test and measurement a breeze for organizations. DEWESoft designs and manufactures a broad range of solutions for the aerospace industry for both ground and flight applications along with telemetry solutions. DEWESoft has solutions including simple data recording in lab and extreme settings, large scale modal analysis, rotating machinery analysis, acoustic testing, telemetry solutions in both air and ground based applications, and many more.
DEWESoft’s solutions address discrete aviation requirements such as testing airplanes, helicopters, rockets, satellites in the air, space, or on the ground.
“Our solutions are based on the foundations of testing, where we build our hardware and software according to the testing environment rather than delivering solutions that fit the marketplace,” states Matt Engquist, Application Engineer at DEWESoft. Notably, the company’s DAQs offer optimum flexibility that enables product manufacturers to use the same system for testing on a workbench that they would for troubleshooting various functions on the field.
Established in 2000, the cornerstone of DEWESoft was laid to transform unstructured and subjective testing environments with its innovative solutions that enable accurate and objective test environments. Since its genesis, the company has been undertaking a customer-centric approach, and accordingly, keeps expanding its product portfolio to meet the unique requirements of its clients. “We encourage our partners and our customers to challenge us with mission-critical applications, which helps us drive innovation,” informs Engquist. Additionally, DEWESoft offers a 7-year warranty on its DAQs, which comes with no recurring licenses or additional fees. DEWESoft believes in “your data is your property to do with as you see fit,” it is not ours to license lock when you need it the most.
Moreover, the company also boasts of a proficient support team that renders exceptional assistance for calibrations and repairs. “Our customers get a one-on-one personal support and are kept in the loop at all times for repairs, calibrations, or any other support services on our custom applications,” mentions Engquist.
DEWESoft’s DAQs have been proven in some of the most challenging mission-critical projects for public and private organizations, including NASA, ESA, Space X, Airbus, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Bombardier, Honeywell, to name a few. Engquist shares a customer success story where, due to some technical glitches, a piston-powered aircraft of the client kept catching fire, which hindered its FAA approval. Thus, the client leveraged DEWESoft’s solutions to conduct a thermal survey, and within a week of acquiring data, they were able to pinpoint the issue with the aircraft and take remedial actions for FAA approval.
DEWESoft boasts of several such success stories that have helped it become the preferred choice of industry-leading manufacturers for their quality assurance requirements. DEWESoft is always advancing their hardware and software solutions releasing new hardware every year and updating their software approximately quarterly. The constant innovation allows DEWESoft to keep incorporating their customers’
requests and keeping up with technology advancements. “We will continue to keep raising the bar in the testing and measurement industry with our innovative solutions, and we believe we will be one of the few companies to help humans get to Mars eventually,” concludes Engquist.
