Designed and Engineered by Test Engineers for Test Engineers

Dynamic Research, Inc (DRI) provides testing services for our clients, completing hundreds of tests per year, including FMVSS, NHTSA NCAP and EURO NCAP tests. We are uniquely and intimately experienced with test targets and equipment for nearly every possible scenario. It’s from this knowledge, and hands-on experience that we design, develop, and produce the best-in-class surrogate targets such as the Soft Car 360®. We introduce to you the next generation in vulnerable road user targets.

Key Features and Benefits
