The DSD test laboratory is equipped with a modern 2MN Hyper-G catapult system as well as with a unique, controlles intrusion system. 

DSD provides a flexible test service beginning at executing the tests, about engineering and preparation of test setups, up to the entire logistic processing of serial monitoring.
Or run with your team tests on your own in the rented laboratory.
