Testing and Characterization for the Aerospace & Defense Industries

With state-of-the-art laboratories and years of materials expertise, our testing and characterization services form the basis of much of Lucideon's activities. We go beyond the standard testing protocols and push the boundaries of what's possible. And we don’t just provide data, we provide solutions too.

Our experts use their cross-industry experience to work alongside clients, to help them to understand the bigger picture with regards their materials and products. We provide analysis, which in turn provides answers to the toughest of materials challenges; this is what differentiates us from other test houses.

Standardized testing procedures are extremely important in the aerospace and defense industries. Standards can also be used as a guideline for programs that differ slightly, or for a different application entirely. In these situations, you need experts that are knowledgeable not only in the test, but also the science to understand the limitations.
