BCT has a wide range of testing capabilities both in our facility and available to us at nearby partner facilities. Random vibration and thermal vacuum testing are part of the standard suite of environmental tests performed on our systems and components. Complete spacecraft testing is available in our labs, including: star simulators, wheel vibration testing, air bearings, Helmholtz cage, and multiple thermal cycle chambers.
At BCT, we use the same software to test our spacecraft as we do to operate the spacecraft on-orbit. This cohesion allows for a more reliable method of testing and operating, as the interfaces and ground databases are the same throughout the life cycle of the mission.
