Solar Array Simulator Helps Get JWST and Other Satellites Into Orbit

Published by AMETEK Programmable Power

NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), is high-profile, but just one of many satellites that launch annually and that 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 discuss ground testing and a great variety of solar-array modes to mimic conditions like eclipses and spin modes, as well as many more simulations.
