NEOSSat being prepared for TVAC testing at DFL

Personnel from the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and Microsat Systems Canada Incorporated (MSCI) prepare NEOSSat for thermal vacuum testing in CSA’s David Florida Lab test facility at Shirleys Bay campus, Ottawa, Ontario. Thermal vacuum testing simulates the extreme hot and cold of the space environment. NEOSSat is a dual-mission microsatellite designed to detect potentially hazardous Earth-orbit-crossing asteroids and track objects that reside in deep space. It is also the first implementation of Canada’s generic multi-mission microsatellite bus.
