M1A1 Abrams Gun Turret Drive Test System

Project Type: Gun Turret Drive Test System

Customer: General Dynamics Land Systems, Warren, MI

Dynamometer: AccuDyne AC Dynamometer

Control System: DynoLAB

SAKOR Technologies used the DynoLAB system coupled with an AccuDyne AC Motoring Dynamometer for performance testing and durability cycling of the gun turret drive mechanism used in the M1A1 Abrams main battle tank. The system performs control system cycling and full-load performance runs on each unit produced. This unique and durable testing system is used for engineering validation of mechanical systems as well as development of control algorithms used in the vehicle.
