Paper Abstract

The Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) supports ground environmental testing with a variety of versatile ground test facilities. The AEDC mission is to test and evaluate aircraft, missile and space systems and their subsystems. This paper will focus on the facilities available and under construction at AEDC to meet the space ground test needs of government and commercial customers. The space chambers and their associated test methodologies are divided into the following areas: sensor calibration and mission simulation, nuclear weapons effects, thermal vacuum/solar simulation, contamination, and component checkout testing.
