Space Simulation tests

The extreme conditions in space place highest demands on the materials of space systems and the reliable functioning of all components.

In our thermal test facilities we allow our customers to verify thermal-mathematical models under realistic space conditions and to seek out inaccuracies and – if necessary – optimise the models.

In simulated space conditions we examine the reliable function of materials for deployment in extreme conditions, as well as the suitability of newly developed components and systems. Our test spectrum covers:
