RS&H has a long-standing history of supporting NASA’s aerospace endeavors, which has given the firm firsthand insight into the requirements and challenges facing both government and private launch providers.

RS&H designed a shaker support stand for the Orion random vibration shaker test. The design incorporates a heavy duty commercially available gantry crane as the primary shaker support stand structure. The gantry crane is fitted with an electrical trolley hoist that provides powered operation for lateral translation and vertical lifting/lowering of the 10,000-lb shaker and supporting structure.
