Mit PATHOS auf dem Weg ins All

First Thermal Vacuum Test


We used our first thermal vacuum test to prove, that the components we have choosen as …

  • On-board Computer
  • Camera
  • Board to run the horizon detection algorithm

… are able to withstand the temperature and pressure conditions that can occure during launch campaign and flight.
The components were heated to 60°C, a temperature that can occure within the rocket during flight. Later they were cooled down to -40°C, what can be ambient temperature during countdown in Sweden.
Additionally the components were under low pressure conditions.
