Fact Sheet Alphabetical List

  • SEA LEVEL TEST CELLS

    Sea-Level Test Cells SL-2 and SL-3, test cells in the Engine Test Facility, provide the capability to economically conduct durability testing on large augmented turbine engines at near sea-level conditions (1,000 foot altitude) by eliminating the cost of running inlet and exhaust plant machinery.The cells are approximately 24 feet in height and
  • SENSOR CHAMBER 10V

    The 10-foot vacuum (10V) Chamber provides mission simulation capability for interceptor and surveillance sensor systems. The space chamber is able to verify sensor performance in simulated operational environments against simulated operational scenarios (Hardware-in-the-Loop). A facility modification was initiated in response to a need for an
  • Space Threat Assessment Testbed (STAT)

    STAT is a ground test facility for evaluating the performance of materials, components, subsystems, and small satellites in a test environment capable of providing conditions from low Earth orbit to geosynchronous operations.
