Dynamic Tests
Instruments are often designed for measuring time-dependent or very short-lived events. It is necessary to simulate such events in a lab environment where the event can be repeated as necessary to test triggering techniques and validate the spectral and radiometric calibration that are performed under static conditions.  

Dynamic tests are also used to assess temporal response and synchronization. OKSI designs such time-dependent or short-lived events that are appropriate for the specific sensor and spectral range.  

Examples below show electrical discharge that produces plasma and thermal radiation of dissociated and ionized air species. Such measurements are appropriate for high resolution spectrometers and radiometers.  

A second example shows a Ammonium Perchlorate (AP) rocket engine fired in a static stand. The propellants used in this model rocket are similar to those used in solid propellant rocket and produce similar spectral signature.
