2. Report on series of laboratory scale tests using the Crew Compartment Underbody Blast Simulator (CCUBS) with PRIMUS Biofidelic Dummy

A series of laboratory scale tests using the Crew Compartment Underbody Blast Simulator (CCUBS) were conducted at the Occupant Protection Laboratory (OPL) at Selfridge ANGB, MI. The tests were designed to compare the responses of a PRIMUS dummy to a Hybrid III (HIII) 50th percentile male Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD). Additionally, the test data will be used to derive correlation between testing on the CCUBS and in a live-fire surrogate, such as the OPL’s Generic Hull (GH)...

CTS welcomes international participants of the ROADPOL seminar led by Heinz Albert Stumpen.

Besides a spectacular rear-end collision on the crash test facility, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Lars Hannawald explained the news about the biofidelic dummy in the dummy lab.
After a lecture on the current topic of road blockers and mobile vehicle barriers, among other things, there were interesting discussions on the subject of occupant protection in the automotive industry.

You are also interested in taking part in a seminar at CTS:


Primus dummies for film studios

In the meantime, biofidelic dummies are also used in film studios. If the stunts are too dangerous for stuntmans, dummies with realistic movements are used. CTS is happy about another delivery of 6 dummies.


Protective clothing saves lives

Good protective helmets not only prevent direct injury from an external impact, but also dampen the effects of the impacting forces so that critical influences on the sensitive brain are significantly mitigated. The biofidelic dummy equipped with the appropriate measurement technology allows a good assessment of the protective effect of protective clothing. Contact us if you would like to test your protective clothing.


CTS successfully starts the new seminar season in June

  • Presentation at the IASIU Europe Conference on Insurance Fraud in Malmö
  • Organization of the Accidenta insurance seminar on the CTS site
  • Venue for Vaillant Roadshow "Mission 2024"
  • Lecture and stand at the Testing Expo in Stuttgart
  • X-ray of a biofidel dummy with a presentation at the carhs practical conference for pedestrian protection in Bergisch Gladbach at the Bast
  • Presentation of the simulation model at the Impetus Conference in Flekkefjord with our partners from EDAG and the HTW Dresden

The first preparations for the drop tests (fall tests) in aviation are underway.

With the drop tests, the effects on the aircraft cell structure, the landing gear and other components are shown.
Using our biofidel dummies, not only the loads that affect the occupants can be measured, but also the injuries of the occupants, such as vertebral contusions, become directly visible.

Are you also interested in drop tests with airplanes, helicopters, drones or other aircraft?


Report on Generic Hull Live-Fire Test with PRIMUS Dummy

A live-fire test using a Generic Hull vehicle surrogate was conducted at the Fort Polk, LA test range on December 8, 2021. The test was conducted to provide baseline data for a correlation study to determine laboratory to live-fire comparability. Additionally, the test provided an opportunity to evaluate the PRIMUS Dummy performance in an environment of the Occupant Protection Laboratory (OPL)...
