Reproducing the extreme conditions of space

Air liquide designs and manufactures space simulation chambers to test satellites' reliability by reproducing extreme space conditions on the ground: a vacuum at 85K, brutal variations in temperature from 100K to 400K, intense vibrations on takeoff, and cosmic radiation.
We work with Thales Alenia Space, among others, helping to create a simulated space environment in its space simulation chambers. The main difficulty is obtaining and maintaining a high vacuum. We therefore supply thermal panels that produce cold using liquid or gaseous nitrogen.
Beyond these components, we can also deliver complete, turnkey, integrated simulation chambers.
