Facility Description

Vibration Test Facility simulates the low frequency vibrations caused by a rocket in the process of the satellite launch, to verify whether the satellite can function normally after bearing such vibrations, and whether the designs and analysis of the satellite structure meet the vibration requirements. To conduct the test, a vibration control equipment that is used for controlling a power amplifier would start a large-volume 150KN vibration machine on which the satellite is placed upon, through the extension platform and the horizontal-slide bench of the vibration machine to carry out a three-axial vibration test in vertical and horizontal directions respectively.
