The space simulation facility conducts thermal vacuum testing of both individual components and overall systems for space applications.
Closed space simulation facility in test mode.
Environmental conditions that will be encountered later in the space mission, such as high vacuum, the cold temperature in space, the temperatures around other celestial bodies and solar radiation, can all be recreated during these simulations. Using a special test setup the facility can be used to study the venting behaviour of structures during launch.
The aim of the thermal vacuum test is to support the process of designing space components and thermal control systems, their qualification and the verification of numerical thermal models.
The solar simulation chamber is accredited as a testing laboratory in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and fulfils the clean room requirements of ISO-8 in accordance with Standard ISO 14644-1.
