The vibration systems will be supplied by IMV Europe. They will have an individual force capability of 200kN and 65kN respectively.
As part of the contract, both systems will incorporate a VST Type horizontal slip table and vertical head expanders for each system.
“Securing these vibration systems will improve our test capability and help us prepare for qualification and pre-launch test campaigns for our next generation satellites.
We look forward to working with THP and IMV on commissioning these systems in our Stevenage spacecraft factory.” said Greg Richardson – Head of Satellite Test & Launch Services at Airbus Defence and Space in Stevenage.
