The Space Environment Simulator can be used for environmental testing of micro and nano satellites, satellite components and payloads.
Thermal Vacuum Chamber: cubic, internal volume 60x60x60 cm. Duble stage vacuum pumps.
Solar Simulator: Spectrolab Xenon lamp, AM0 spectrum. Beam intensity constant over a 12x12 cm area. The beam enters the test area from a 127 mm diameter fused silica window.
Cooling: a shroud on five walls of the chamber can be cooled with liquid nitrogen
Thermal Monitoring: the temperatures inside the chamber are monitored using platinum thermoresistors PT100, with a precision of
Electrical Feed-Throughs: multi-pin Sub-D connectors can be used to power instruments, resistive heathers and sensors inside the chamber.
Mechanical Feed-Through: a one degree-of-freedom manipulator can be used both to support and to orientate the Unit Under Test inside the vacuum chamber.
High Quality Optical Window: a 76mm diameter high quality
Optical Bench: an optical bench outside the chamber is used to create optical circuits to test components using the high quality window.
