Testing

SHC is in full swing for building a CubeSat.  This means that we need testing equipment.

  1. Thermal vacuum testing - With access to a bell jar vacuum chamber, a thermal shroud needs to be added.  To do this a design was engineered and is currently being built.  This a picture of the liquid nitrogen cooled thermal shroud bringing the CubeSat down to low temperature operating conditions and heating it to outgassing requirements.


  2. Helmholtz Coil - The team is building a 3-axis Helmholtz coil for calibration of the magnetometer.  Also, this tool could be used to verify the passive stabilization techniques such as hysteresis dampening.
