Propulsion Test Office
WSTF offers numerous ambient pressure and altitude stands to test rocket propulsion test systems as well as single rocket engines. Propellant capabilities include hypergolic and liquid oxygen/hydrocarbons. Both propellant and test article temperature conditioning is available, as well as the capability to provide saturated propellants to the test article inlets.
Six test stands provide vacuum test capability to altitudes greater than 100,000 ft (30,000 m) and three test stands provide ambient testing to an altitude of 5000 ft (1500 m) above sea level for the International Space Station, government agencies, and commercial industry.
