Crystal Instruments and Sentek Dynamics highlighted products and solutions for environmental vibration testing at the recent Small Satellite Conference 2017 in Logan, Utah.
The annual Small Satellite Conference provides a forum to review recent successes, explore new directions, and introduces emerging technologies. The conference creates an excellent environment for networking and offers the opportunity to launch new, innovative, and low-cost technologies.
We had a successful trade show at the exhibition with an impressive turnout of 2,550 participants, 1,100 pre-conference workshops, 350 students, 40 countries represented, 190 commercial exhibits, and 25 university exhibits. We attracted a lot of interest as we met with Smallsat design engineers and manufacturers.
Most satellites are tested on electro-dynamic shakers in each of three orthogonal directions. Satellites also undergo testing procedures in Thermal, Shock, Vacuum, and High-Altitude Testing chambers.
Smallsats range in mass from less than 2 lbs to 360 lbs, and are gaining in popularity. Crystal Instruments and Sentek Dynamics support these emerging industries with reliable products. Our innovative vibration analysis test products assist the Mini-satellite, Micro-satellite, Nano-satellite, and Pico-satellite to be launched successfully in space.
