Dual-purpose space simulation facility for plasma thruster and satellite testing

Petkovic, Michael


The Space Simulation Facility (S2F) is a dual purpose system designed to conduct plasma thruster testing and thermal vacuum qualification of satellites and instrumentation. Commissioned in 2013 at the Australian National University's Advanced Instrumentation and Technology Centre (AITC), the S2F brings a diverse range of new measurement capabilities to Australia. The S2F is a Dynavac-built system capable of thermal cycling from -170°C to +150°C at 3°C/min average ramp rate. A removable platen...[Show more]
