Reduce time & cost. Increase accuracy & efficiency.

For years, the conversation about new methods for acoustic testing has revolved around high fidelity concert line array systems, shoehorned into tall stacks and tight circles for aerospace applications. Never intended for the intense, high-output demands of launch simulation, these high-fidelity music systems often fall short of customers needs. They are prone to mechanical and thermal failures, and the inherently coherent nature of concert line arrays leads to unavoidable irregularities in the sound field. Many have attempted to soften the negative effects of these hot spots and standing waves in the sound field through physical deployment changes or clever processing tricks, but these irregularities are unfortunately inherent to line source-based systems.

Enter into the conversation Acoustic Research Systems, a company built from the ground up for the sole purpose of providing revolutionary new products and services for customers seeking the next generation of ultra-high output acoustic testing solutions.

ARS started from a completely blank slate, working with customers around the world to determine what a next generation acoustic launch simulation system would work like, what sort of limitations would need to be surpassed, and what capabilities customers were seeking that were unmet with existing designs. After years of research and development, the next frontier in acoustic testing has been reached, with the arrival of the ARS NEUTRON system.
