Customer Stories & Testimonials

Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company, and HBM have concluded the Operational Readiness Review (ORR) for the new GEN6 Data Acquisition System, which will now officially go into operation.

Based on the QuantumX universal and distributable data acquisition system from HBM and developed in close cooperation with the customer, the new GEN6 Data Acquisition System will empower Sikorsky’s Laboratories with new capabilities for data acquisition, handling, and storage.


“We had narrowed down our selection process to four measuring amplifier systems. Then QuantumX from HBM won us over in the practical test, especially with its extremely low measurement uncertainty.”

Bruno Kanzenbach, Senior Engineer at Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG)


“We selected QuantumX because we could plug anything into it quite easily and it has an excellent recording capacity both in terms of the recording span and the rate”.

Matt Williams, Senior Structural Test Engineer at Agusta Westland
