Dynavac and Weiss Technik offer a complete line of environmental chambers covering the full range of environmnents encountered in aerospace applications. High-altitude missions subject components and systems to harsh temperature, humidity, and temperature conditions. New, daring planetary missions with rovers and drones must operate and succeed on exotic surfaces and in unusual atmospheres.
Environmental Test Chambers
Flight test your hardware from earth's surface to alien worlds
Exoplanet environmental test systems
Emerging, ambitious space missions such as regolith testing and extraterrestial UAVs need innovative test systems for realistic enviromental simulation. Dynavac’s highly-collaborative approach givees customers a unique solutions giving the exact environmental conditions to build full confidence before flight.
- Chambers available from 5 to 20 feet; larger chambers including field-constructed facilities can be custom manufactured
- Chamber pressures cover from high vacuum conditions to 1241 torr (4 to 24 psi)
- Automated pressure control system holds chamber pressure within +/- 10 torr
- Temperature range of –180C to +150C
- Temperature uniformity of +/- 5C across entire chamber volume and temperature stability of +/- 2C
- Precision pressure and temperature control
- Surface conditions (regolith), atmospheric composition, and winds can be replicated in the chamber
- Oxygen monitor verifies internal chamber air quality
Weiss Technik Environmental Test Chambers incorporate innovative engineering and advanced technology. The quality construction, long-lasting durability, and future-proof chamber performance are unmatched in the industry. Test chamber sizes range from small reach-in chambers to large walk-in chambers. These chambers may be tailored to meet your specific testing needs, simulating any environment from earth to space.
Dynavac environmental test system to simulate conditions on Titan
Dynavac announced today a successful milestone review for its Titan Thermal Cycle Chamber contracted by Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland. The chamber will support a NASA-sponsored mission to send Dragonfly, a rotorcraft-lander, to Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.
