Thermal Vacuum Chamber – TVC

Dynavac thermal vacuum systems simulate the harsh conditions of space. As a trusted partner of aerospace companies, we support all aspects of flight testing and space simulation from hardware space qualification to bakeout, from smallsats to large satellites or manned space capsules. Systems replicate a wide variety of environmental conditions for the test and qualification of space flight hardware.

Dynavac offers both highly configurable standard platforms and fully custom systems to meet unique test requirements. These systems and applications include:

  • Thermal Vacuum & Cycling Testing – complete standard and customized solutions
  • Electric Propulsion Testing – develop, test and qualify electric thrusters
  • Vacuum Bake Out – removes volatiles and contaminants in preparation for flight
  • Heat flux enclosures
  • Cold/heat plates
