Vibration and Shock Testing Facilities

June 16, 2020

This essentially mimics the violent vibrations that a satellite would experience during launch. It is critical to perform vibration tests to ensure that CubeSats are ready for launch.

Some of the noteworthy equipment under this facility are:

Bruel & Kjaer V780 Shaker with 2- channel high frequency DAQ system

  • Peak sine force 5.12 kN
  • RMS random force 4.33 kN
  • Peak shock force 9.5 kN
  • Maximum displacement (peakā€“peak): 25.4 mm
