Jeremiah Leiter Joins Keystone Space Collaborative Board

Furthering Acoustic Research Systems (ARS) efforts to support the growing space industry in the Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia region, we are pleased to announce that our CEO & Co-Founder Jeremiah Leiter has joined the board of the Keystone Space Collaborative.

ARS expands to Europe

The Space race is getting louder and more efficient as Acoustic Research Systems (ARS) announces their European Headquarters in Potsdam, Germany.

Shepherdstown, WV / November 14th, 2022 Acoustic Research Systems – Developers of the first and only purpose built, turn key acoustic test system for launch simulation, today announced the opening of its European office as part of its Worldwide expansion strategy. 

U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) visits Acoustic Research Systems in Martinsburg, W.Va. on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.

“The future is bright for the growth of the Aerospace industry and we believe that we can and will make a great impact to the economic growth in the region,” Jeremiah Leiter, CEO & Co-Founder of Acoustic Research Systems, said. “We are honored that Senator Capito has put some attention to our mission both here in Martinsburg but also with our other initiatives with the Keystone Space Collaborative. In only a few months she was able to help garner the attention and resources that help us keep moving forward. We are truly grateful for her depth of engagement with these initiatives.”

Acoustic Research Systems (ARS) announces partnership with Dassault Systems and their Wave6 software program.

Shepherdstown, WV / July 5, 2021 – After many months of R&D, ARS and Dassault presented their results at the Aerospace Corporation’s Spacecraft and Launch Vehicle Dynamic Environments Workshop (SCLV) on June 29th.

The collaborative effort produced a more accurate method for predicting the results of direct field acoustic tests in Dassault’s Wave6 software with the inclusion of calibrated ARS NEUTRON acoustic source models.

“Our focus was on building a more fully-realized model of the internal and external behaviors of the acoustic source device, thus leading to a more accurate prediction of the acoustic field with the inclusion of highly accurate directivity information vs simple monopole-based simulation methods.” said Jeremiah Leiter, CEO & Co-Founder.


Have you ever had to get a spacecraft, satellites, aerospace components, or other systems environmentally tested? If so, we would love to hear from you!

The Keystone Space Collaborative and Acoustic Research Systems is conducting a market survey to explore the demand for an all-inclusive environmental testing facility. This facility would provide independent design verification and qualification testing services (i.e. acoustic, radiation, thermal, etc.) to component and system manufacturers in the tri-state region. (Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia)

Consistent access to modern, affordable environmental testing services and resources is a significant obstacle for many aerospace manufacturers. Your feedback will help us better assess and understand the demand and need for an all-inclusive environmental testing facility in the KSC region.

Acoustic Research Systems Sets The Tone For Launch

Collaborating with the very best to reach the next levels in space

Shepherdstown, WV / April 10, 2022 – Acoustic Research Systems (ARS), the technological leader in direct field acoustic testing, is proud to announce their participation with the Keystone Space Collaborative, a non-profit organization that has established itself as the leading catalyst for the growth and success of the commercial space sector in the Tri-State Region (PA, OH, WV).  Through awareness-building, connections and other programs that leverage the unique strengths of the region, Keystone will play an important role in education, job creation, inclusive prosperity, and growth of the regional space industry.

We are pleased to announce that NASA has selected Acoustic Research Systems and the next-generation NEUTRON System with m+p International DF-ACS acoustic control to provide turnkey, on-site direct field acoustic testing services for the NASA VIPER rover program.

Scheduled to launch on a SpaceX rocket for delivery to the moon by Astrobotic Technology, the VIPER rover will scout the surface of the moon for water, ice, and other materials as a key part of the NASA Artemis program.

ARS is excited to work with NASA on this important acoustic test, bringing together the future of space exploration with the future of acoustic testing technology. Stay tuned, we’ll be sharing more fun facts about VIPER and about our ARS NEUTRON System over the coming months!
