There is no industry in which optimal performance of systems and materials is as critical as in the aerospace industry; failure is not an option and enduring performance is required under harsh conditions. Eternal Sun supplies dedicated solar testing equipment that enables institutions and suppliers in the aerospace industry to determine the behavior of their innovations under space-identical sunlight conditions.
Our space solar simulator is perfectly suited to test complete spacecraft or their PV modules. Pre-launch testing of the mounted PV system provides the desired assurance the system will perform up to specification once out in the open. The steady-state illumination of the solar simulator makes it possible to test even the latest generation of high efficiency space grade solar cells, such as quadruple junction GaAs.
Furthermore, for space material durability testing we offer solar simulators integrated in a climate chamber. This enables our customers to test the reliability of materials in normal and extreme space conditions such as strongly varying temperatures.
