Environmental tests have to be conducted at equipment, payload or satellite levels. Capacity exists to simulate thermal, thermal vacuum conditions as well as solar simulation conditions.
• Environmental chambers at equipment level exist on all sites.
• Large facility to take care of complete satellite tests exist in Toulouse, Intespace facility.
