Specific skills-Metrology

The specific skills of the Metrology Department Contamination applied to space test cover three areas:

  • The thermo-optical, to characterize the efficiency of the satellites thermal coating (Normal and hemispherical emissivity, solar absorptivity),
  • The contamination, which tracks the level of cleanliness of the caissons
  • The outgassing tests, that measure the amount and type of pollutant emitted by materials subjected to high temperatures under vacuum according to ESA ECSS-Q ST -70-05C rule.

* The pollutants are analyzed according to four families defined by the standard ESA ECSS-Q-70 ST-05C.
