Home of the world's largest space environment simulation chamber, the facility has tested parts of rockets, Mars landers and space stations.
This is the world's only test facility capable of full-scale rocket engine firings and launch vehicle system level tests at high-altitude conditions.
This smaller space-environment test chamber allows safe, large-scale experiments using super-cold liquid hydrogen. Together with the CCL facility, these facilities compose the Cryogenic Test Complex.
A new, state-of-the-art facility for research, development and qualification of cryogenic materials, components and systems. Together with the K-Site facility, these facilities compose the Cryogenic Test Complex.
A unique wind tunnel designed to test air-breathing propulsion systems at speeds exceeding 5 times the speed of sound.
