Micro-vibration Facilitiesmain parameters
The Reaction Wheel Characterisation Facility (RCF) and 6dMVMS allow to measure interface forces/moments induced by your equipment. The facilities are complimentary: The RCF is used for measuring at higher frequencies in the mN range and the 6dMVMS is used for low frequencies in the uN range. By using a vacuum vessel the RCF provides the ability to perform measurements under “low” vacuum conditions, the 6dMVMS is also able to excite equipment.
The 6 DOF data set acquired with the both facilities can be used to characterize the induced micro-vibration environment or as input to analytical models allowing an accurate investigation of the contribution of unit level operational dynamics to subsystem or system level performances.
