Solar Array Simulator Helps Get JWST, Other Satellites Into Orbit

May 19, 2022 by AMETEK Programmable Power

Application Note Overview

The JWST is high-profile satellite, but just one of many that launch annually and serve applications ranging from communications to military reconnaissance. To get them ready for space, there is need for extensive ground testing with solar array simulators. In this application note, the experts at AMETEK Programmable Power talk through ground testing and a great variety of solar-array modes to mimic conditions like eclipses and spin modes, as well as many more simulations.

Learn about:

  • How solar array simulators make necessary ground-based testing for satellites possible.
  • How the Solar Array Simulator's eclipse mode supports low earth orbit satellites
  • Safety features of the Solar Array Simulator
