Dependable Measurements with High-Energy Materials

Pressure measurements with high-energy materials set demanding requirements for various aspects of sensor technology – such as mechanical stability, dynamics, thermal shock and the installation location. Kistler solutions reflect application-specific expertise, gained over many years of working with pyrotechnic applications, such as airbag and closed vessel testing.
