Calspan Receives National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Contract for Executing Automotive Crash Tests to Verify That Vehicles Comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 214, Side Impact Protection

Calspan announced that it has been awarded the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration contract for executing automotive crash tests to verify that vehicles comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 214, Side Impact Protection. Under this five year contract, Calspan will provide the necessary qualified personnel, facilities, and equipment to perform inspection, compliance testing, and reporting services. Calspan delivers superior automotive safety testing services to support government programs, vehicle manufacturers, and regulatory agencies. In January of 2018, Calspan will open a crash test facility to support the growing needs of the automotive crash test industry.

MESSRING and Calspan Partner to Provide Automotive Test Solutions

MESSRING and Calspan announce that a partnership agreement has been established between both companies. This partnership fulfills a growing market need for automotive crash test services and the associated specialized equipment in response to the recent increase in the number of vehicular fatalities year over year. Against the backdrop of the yearly increase in deaths from car crashes since 1975, and with the U.S. Department of Transportation considering a major upgrade of the U.S. New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), automotive manufacturers and suppliers must begin to invest in crash test facilities, services, and equipment to develop safer vehicles. The complexities involved with building a new or upgrading an existing crash test facility are widely variable. The types of testing, types of vehicles that can be tested, and the ability of the facility to conform to future requirements all factor into proper crash facility design. A partnership between MESSRING and Calspan will provide customers with a singular point of contact, resulting in a best value solution. Together, they will jointly present customers holistic solutions which encompass identifying and acquisition of suitable real estate, conceptual crash lab design, specialized crash lab equipment and construction management. Furthermore, to minimize the impact that downtime can have on a lab being upgraded, Calspan will provide crash test services and test specific training on its MESSRING equipment therefore making the transition for the customer seamless. Under this agreement, Calspan will also perform calibrations on MESSRING loads cells, DAS products and speed traps.
