Environmental Testing
to get you on board

We offer our customers support with test campaign planning and testing at a certified test facility in Berlin. Save costs and accelerate your mission schedule by delegating these services to us.

Testing

Our expertise

Profit from our years of hands-on experience in environmental testing for small satellites. Our expertise is built on our close collaboration with international launch providers and from undertaking numerous test campaigns for our own hardware and our customer's satellites. We create the optimal test plan for your satellite while considering your spacecraft design, mission conditions and target orbit parameters. Loads and durations can target a particular launch vehicle, or can envelope multiple launchers for maximum flexibility.

Environmental tests profiles and types:

Vibration and shock testing

We provide a full range of mechanical testing to cover the qualification, proto-flight or acceptance requirements of all launch vehicles.

Thermal and vacuum testing

Thermal cycling and thermal vacuum testing is available to meet your mission requirements. Whether testing survivability limits or simply performing a vacuum bake-out, we can perform the tests that fit your needs.

Qualification and Acceptance tests

Qualification of your design based on the composed mechanical loads in order to meet the requirements of most common launch vehicles. Tailored acceptance testing profiles of your flight models to the launch vehicle of your choice, ensuring the function of your spacecraft while increasing confidence in its reliability.

Test profiles design

We offer support to develop individual specifications for mission tailored test profiles with optimized loads and durations. Inclusive our acceptance guarantee of the test profiles by the launch authority.

Adapters & additional hardware

We offer TestPods and other test fixtures with the test interfaces identical to the launch vehicle interfaces, ensuring the validity of all test results.
