Engineers at the Arnold Engineering Development Complex in Tennessee are trialing the use of high-speed video cameras to detect vibration in engines.

The use of high-speed cameras for vibration analysis is being tested as part of an initiative to use proven non-defense commercial technologies within the US Air Force (USAF). The system, which has been provided by Mechanical Solutions Inc. (MSI) via the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, has been used at the  Aeropropulsion Ground Test Branch at the Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC), part of the Arnold Air Force Base in Tennessee.
