SoftRide Overview

Moog CSA's SoftRide vibration isolation systems protect whole satellites from the rough ride into orbit. SoftRide also provides some shock isolation and reduces transmission of energy that drives acoustic loading. The standard SoftRide designs are tuned to each combination of launch vehicle and payload to ensure the best performance while remaining compatible with attitude control systems.  We manufacture and test SoftRide components and install systems jointly with customers.

We are continuously updating SoftRide for existing and new vehicles, and advancing the technology including adaptive SoftRide.
