The objective is to provide a robust and efficient test mean for electro-magnetic compatibility and workmanship testing of complex telecommunication satellite payloads. The method aims to become generic for all kinds of telecommunication satellite platforms.
The main challenges of this project are:
The method is based on the use of a mobile and flexible reverberating chamber covering the whole satellite payload and allowing the global electrical field characterization inside the satellite module.
The test mean has been installed and tested.
A RE-RS test campaign has been performed on 2 real telecommunication satellite payloads. The results overpassed the expected benefits in terms of testing time saving improvement (1/5) and cost savings.
