Thermal Vacuum Chamber Updates

On June 7th, the Space Systems Research Lab Summer Team attended a training session on the newly remodeled Thermal Vacuum Chamber (T-Vac). Krzysztof Bzydk (2018 M.S. Aerospace Engineering) worked on updating the T-Vac for his master's project. The new capabilities include point source heating elements to simulate solar radiation effects, a removable shroud to hang test articles, x4 IR Thermal Sensors, a digital control interface, a switched power interface, and detailed operations and maintenance procedures. Krzysztof will be heading off to NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio to work propulsion for the Orion spacecraft. We are appreciative of his work with SSRL and wish him the best.
