Moog Supplies Test System for Full-Scale Aircraft Tests to ASRI of China

Moog Industrial Group, a division of Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) and a provider of leading-edge solutions and products for the test industry, announced today that it has successfully delivered an aerospace test system to the Aircraft Strength Research Institute (ASRI) of China for full-scale aircraft tests. The order included a 192-channel control system and a 4096-channel data acquisition system. This order is ASRI's largest test facility expansion project in the past five years, as well as Moog's largest win in the Chinese aerospace test market. The entire system was delivered to ASRI's test laboratory located in Xi'an in late June 2010 and was put through real tests in October 2010. ASRI, a subsidiary of Aviation Industry Corporation of China, is the country's largest aircraft test center in China, focused on fatigue and static testing of full-scale aircraft structure. "It was actually a follow-on order to our initial successful association with ASRI five years ago," said Tom Pierce, Business Development Manager, Simulation and Test, Moog Asia Pacific. Moog provided a 64-channel control system for ASRI's components tests in 2005. "The high level of technical support that we provided has built a strong partnership with ASRI based on Moog's capabilities and innovative technology." Moog's turnkey solution for ASRI also included a well-trained, authorized support team that will be able to respond quickly and professionally to help the customer get the most from the test equipment investment. The services cover application engineering, start-up and installation, commissioning, training and test execution among other things. "The recent orders have helped the team build a better understanding about ASRI's requirements and we look forward to a long-term partnership with ASRI and the aviation industry in China," observed Pierce. Moog aerospace test systems are designed with the knowledge and experience gained over the years. Each system is designed for efficient aerospace test system operation featuring quality Moog components, innovative features, ease of operation, and the highest standards of test control and precision.
