Testing and ground support

The key to a succesfull satellite is testing, testing, testing!  Througout this project, several test setups were developed to validate different aspects of the satellites.

These include:

  • An Helmholtz cage for validation of magnetometers and magnetorquers
  • An air-bearing test beach for validation of magnetometers and magnetorquers, and antenna deployment
  • A vacuum chamber for thermal vacuum characterization of the satellite and electronics
  • A rotation table for characterization of the gyroscope
