ARS’ NEUTRON System is the prime offering in the NEUTRON series of proprietary, purpose-built acoustic devices for Direct Field Acoustic Testing applications.
Designed to provide next-generation acoustic power output for aerospace, scientific and industrial applications, the ARS NEUTRON System is part of the turn-key ARS NEUTRON complete solution for mobile or fixed High Power Direct Field Acoustic Testing needs.
Provides full-range output that requires no additional sub-bass reinforcement. Features best-in-class acoustical efficiency for maximum performance and reliability.
The NEUTRON System is a highly scalable, capable and economical solution for a wide range of different-sized test articles.
Sets the state-of-the-art for Direct Field Acoustic Testing technological innovation offering a complete, end-to-end solution.
Very-Large-Format High-Output Direct field Acoustic Tests, especially those that require significant height, reduced setup time and best-in-class acoustic output and frequency response.
Small-format Direct Field Acoustic Tests, especially those seeking an economical and highly modular solution to achieving maximum test SPL with a highly uniform field and full-range frequency response.
Reverberant chamber augmentation, where existing wide-band horn systems can be augmented with the narrow- band control and high acoustic output of a scalable ARS NEUTRON system.
Each NEUTRON device provides full-range output of the entire frequency spectrum required for testing with no need for additional sub-bass reinforcement. Features best-in-class efficiency and a unified output design.
The NEUTRON System is highly scalable without compromise for a wide range of different sized test articles. Any size of test article from large-format satellites to small cubsats and everything in between can benefit from the application of a uniform, highly-diffuse acoustic field, with no compromise on the most rigorous test requirements.
The proprietary ARS CORERACK package provides all power and processing necessary to properly operate each acoustic device. Acoustic testing can be performed without massive power sources. Highly precise processing and safety limiter systems operate in real-time to ensure the NEUTRON System runs safely and efficiently.
Custom-engineered, fully-integrated thermal management system ensures maximum performance and response linearity for full test duration, while significantly reducing thermal load on transducers and eliminating cool-down times.
Suspension hardware designed specifically to safely expedite the process of building columns of NEUTRON cabinets makes the sytem both nore efficient to construct and deconstruct - and also significantly more scalable for any size of test.
The NEUTRON 104 acoustic device is exceptionally acoustically efficient, enabling a significant amount of the electrical input driven into the system to transmit out of the system as acoustic energy and significantly reducing energy dissipated as heat.
