vibration testing at ESTEC

vibration tests at ESTECOn 27th of January we completed a full vibration qualification program on the Bison 64 sunsensors showing the extremely high eigenfrequency of the units ( >2000Hz) and the capability to survive the specified 20mm peak to peak 30g sine vibrations and 37.9g random vibrations.

Another significant step on our way to TRL8 level
