Vibration test facility

The vibration test facility shall proof the mechanical qualification and workmanship of the design, manufacturing and integration activities of mainly spacecraft equipment by simulating the mechanical loads during transport and launch. The test items will be fixed with a special designed adapter onto the shaker interface. The tests can be performed in three different axis either with sinusoidal or random spectrum (or mix of both) and of shock loads.
