Pre2Pos drives survive final dynamic tests for space qualification


AG-LT and AG-HT have successfully survived vibration and pyro-shock environmental tests, as part of their space qualification campaign.

 

In the facilities of SERMS srl in Terni, Pre2Pos chosen drives underwent a series of stressful dynamic tests to prove their suitability for space usage. Dynamic tests are meant to simulate the delicate phases of launch and stage separation. Afterwards, the drives operational efficacy must be verified, and their resonant frequencies are checked to prove their structural robustness. The environmental tests were designed on Vega vector stress levels.

 

In the next stage of the campaign, the drives will undergo Thermal-Vacuum cycles to check their functional range.
