The IABG space centre offers an up to date engineering department and has its own mechanical workshop. The spectrum of tasks reaches from design of complex test adapters and thermal systems, up to adjustments of mechanical ground support equipment (MGSE) during a test campaign.
The development of test-relevant MGSE requires detailed knowledge of its use in the Assembly-Integration-Test phase, as well as the necessary test facilities and procedures. Since we as IABG both operate the German national space centre in Ottobrunn as well as the ESA test centre in Noordwijk, we can offer two crucial advantages to our customers:
- Test-specific MGSE requirements, already considered during the design phase
- Test adapters qualified on the same test system, which used later to perform final tests
