Testing GSE

Thermal vacuum chambers

DTM has a thermal vacuum chamber available for execution of thermal vacuum tests either on hardware developed internally or for our customers. Please contact us to assess feasibility and quotation of specific thermal vacuum tests. The vacuum level is better than 1x10e-5 mbar while the temperature range is between -80C and +250C. DTM has also an extensive know-how for the design and realization of custom thermal vacuum chambers to meet the most challenging requirements.

For Thales Alenia Space (ASI program) DTM designed, developed and qualified the ISA MT-GSE (ISA Mechanical/Thermal Ground Support Equipment) thermal vacuum chamber including all control software and acquisition system. The facility is used for the qualification of the ISA instruments to be flown on the Bepi Colombo mission for space exploration.

The thermal vacuum chamber is composed by a cooling and heating system, three cold plates, 4 vacuum pumps (including turbo-molecular pump and ionic pump), high accuracy temperature and pressure acquisition systems and the control software.
