Abstract
The Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics, Astronomy Technology Research Group's vibration measurement capabilities include modal test via impulse hammer or electrodynamic exciter, structural response monitoring via piezoelectric accelerometers, and data acquisition via LabVIEW virtual instruments. This paper will review our existing capabilities, and give examples of past and future applications relevant to astronomical instrumentation.
