ADELIS-SAMSON Successfully Completes Thermal Bakeout Test

03 Jun 2020

The flight model of the ADELIS-SAMSON nanosatellite was placed in the ASRI vacuum chamber facility, and heated to 50 deg for 24 hours (“bakeout”) in order to examine the amount of mass loss due to outgassing. The satellite successfully passed the test, with a mass loss significantly smaller than required (<0.1%).
