Test environments

MOON

Environment Overview

MOON

NEW science and technology for the Moon

LRS Labs test your technology and conduct experiments which help validate product and science behind it. LRS Labs provides a testing environment, accelerated testing results and synergistic effects not replicated on Earth or in open space. These exposures include: Atomic Oxygen, Solar radiation, Vacuum of Space, Microgravity, Extreme Temperatures, Micrometeoroid Impacts, Direct Sun exposure.

Test on the Moon and for the Moon

Solar radiation test

Radiation test verify and optimize the radiation hardness assurance process in the new space market and reduce some cost without a significant loss of the confidence level.

Atomic Oxygen

Atomic oxygen is the most prevalent atomic particles encountered in low earth orbit, is highly reactive with plastics and some metals, causing severe erosion.

Microgravity

Microgravity help test and validate technologies and electronics in a real microgravity environment.

Direct Sun exposure

During the test portion of the electromagnetic radiation given off by the Sun, in particular infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light help validate technology work in orbit environment.

Destination Overview

Test in Stratosphere

Hardware tests on 30 km and higher

LRS High Altitude Platform is the perfect fit for payload tests, subsystem validation and demonstration missions. We provide a platform for you to test your satellite communication subsystems and/or full self-containing ground segment communication systems on 30+ km altitude. You can now launch scientific or commercial payloads to the stratosphere for a reduced cost. The combination of several payloads into one single flight offers the possibility to reduce the price to a level that can be easily accessible by various organisations and companies.

Tests in orbit and ISS

Complex testing for grounbreaking technologies

For orbit and ISS testing LRS accommodates any type of technology: passive and powered. Whether you want to reduce risk before marketing a technology or if you are conducting basic research, LRS Labs is an ideal test platform for the external space environment. Receiving your flown technology hardware back enables a detailed analysis of the effects of spaceflight. LRS labs provides ability to test anything – active electronics, solar cells, materials, communications and makes real more than 300 experiments for your products. Our environments includes extreme levels of solar- and charged-particle radiation, atomic oxygen, hard vacuum and temperature extremes. Everything to make sure your hardware prepared to any working conditions.

Tests in LRS laboratory

Fast and affordable hardware tests

Does a technology function properly in the harsh orbital environment over an extended time? Will electronics hold up under the intense radiation and temperature extremes? Will atomic oxygen or UV cause degradation? Through our privately owned ground facility, you can test your payload or experiment and evaluate the performance, stability, and long term survivability of materials, components and small systems and get its back after its flight. Our low prices and commercial practices have put microgravity projects within the budgetary realm of hundreds of universities, smaller organizations and first-time commercial space research users. Customers today range from educational institutions to research organizations, both within the Europe and around the world.

Ground lab environments

Temperature and Humidity Testing

Environmental tests such as high-temperature testing, temperature cycling testing or moisture resistance testing.

Vibration Testing

LRS laboratory houses electrodynamic vibration testing systems that can handle the most demanding vibration and shock testing specifications.

Shock Testing

Shock testing is commonly used to determine a test article’s ability to tolerate the mechanical stress waves produced by a high frequency, high-G shock event, such as rocket stage separations.

UV Testing

Ultraviolet exposure (UV testing) is performed to understand how a material will withstand the damaging effects of ultraviolet exposure, which can cause significant changes to the properties and useful life of a material.
