Cryogenic launch-simulation test bed
Before launching instruments on rockets, it is important for NASA to understand how they will react to the stresses caused during launch. With the new cryostat developed by HPD, NASA can now perform high acceleration vibration testing of instruments at liquid nitrogen temperatures. This provides a higher confidence test than the room-temperature tests historically offered. With the Vibe Cryostat, vibration testing at cryogenic testing is made more convenient.
