Using LabVIEW, CompactRIO and a Compact Vision System to Upgrade a Hot-Fire Rocket Test Facility

The Challenge:
Controlling and measuring a hot-fire rocket engine test performed in a high-altitude environment in real time.

The Solution:
Using NI CompactRIO hardware and the LabVIEW Real-Time Module to control rocket operation and acquire, log, and publish temperature, pressure, and thrust data; LabVIEW to analyse and present this data in a remote control centre; and LabVIEW and an NI Compact Vision System to closely and instantly monitor vacuum chamber temperatures.
