The thermal vacuum chamber facility provides a comprehensive environmental test complex that is specifically designed to simulate the high vacuum and varying thermal conditions that spacecraft encounter. The facility consists of a large test chamber (5.5 m diameter and 9.75 m long), two medium test chambers (2.5 m diameter and 3 m high), three small test chambers (0.5 m diameter and 0.5 m high), a machinery room, a network of computers, a 98,420 litre liquid nitrogen storage facility, and an assortment of handling fixtures and cranes for ground transport of payloads.
