REGULUS passes vibration tests

Jul 31, 2019

REGULUS structural-thermal version has been successfully tested in vibration with qualification levels. The configuration was more than a classical structural-thermal model, since the fluidics and the motor sub-systems were in flight version (all sensors and valves up and running, tank full of propellant).

These tests are a necessary step to understand and prove the survivability of our plasma motor to the future space environment and launch.
