Thermal vacuum testing allows for the simulation of space conditions, including the temperature and altitude that the Vigoride spacecraft will experience during its mission.
"The TVAC campaign put our Vigoride vehicle to the test in conditions that closely simulate the space environment," said
The next steps for the team include conducting follow-on testing of specific vehicle components to address findings from the TVAC testing.
"We test to learn, push, advance our technology, and find anything to address prior to launch," said Schwarz. "The few test anomalies we experienced during TVAC, particularly for a development program, is a testament to the diligence of a talented team."
Vigoride is also undergoing preparation for vibration testing to verify that all systems are ready for the launch environment. Vibration testing is the final phase of the ground test campaign before the vehicle is shipped to the launch service provider for flight. As previously disclosed,
"I'm very proud of the tremendous efforts put in by the entire team," said
