Environmetal tests

The pre-flight preparation for space instruments and satellites is a separate area.

It includes a number of tests to verify the resistance of the satellite at high vibrations during the start-up, and at the same time it must verify the functionality in space environment in the orbit. The entire test campaign includes individual examinations according to the test procedure.

Pre-flight tests consist of the following:

  • Physical performance,
  • Vibration tests,
  • Shock tests,
  • Thermo-vacuum tests.

For VZLUSAT-1 tests were performed according to this test procedure. All tests for the PFM flight model took 2 months.
