Thermal Vacuum Chamber Testing for Satellites

Vacuum Chamber Testing

ECCOSORB® SF, be tuned to reduce reflections inside a ground based thermal vacuum chamber. See below for successful applications

  • Inmarsat IV Satellite, ECCOSORB® SF-2.2
  • Japanese GPS Satellite, ECCOSORB® SF-1.2/SS6M
  • Several US Satellites ECCOSORB® SF-1.5
  • Argentinean Earth Resource Satellites, ECCOSORB® SF-1.275

Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) on AURA Spacecraft


ECCOSORB® BSR-1/SS6M, is used to cover the entire surface of the inside of the quasi-optical bench that holds mirrors, dichroic beam splitters and polarizers that split up the incoming signal to different wavelength receivers. The BSR-1/SS6M prevents the scattering of the radar beam that would give false readings of wavelength intensity
