Satellites and space vehicles are both delicate and costly. And they operate under extreme conditions. Moreover, during launch, they experience extremely high levels of vibration and acoustical sound pressure- This can severely damage or even destroy components or the payload. So thoroughly testing without over-testing the whole structure including the sub-systems before launching it into space is vital. The engineers only get one chance to test many space vehicles, because the space system was designed to handle one test and one launch cycle only. Notably, high-quality vibration testing is crucial to ensure structural integrity and reliability.
HBK provides safe, reliable, and efficient testing solutions for structural and acoustical space vehicle qualification. Our system is optimised to reduce the time from test to report.
