Spacecraft Assembly, Integration, and Test
ARES has provided spacecraft Assembly, Integration, and Test support to the Air Force Research Lab at Kirtland AFB for spacecraft and high-altitude balloon projects for over ten years. Our experience includes verification and performance assessment of all spacecraft, ground operations, and ground support equipment systems and subsystems. We provided hands-on AI&T support for TacSat II, TacSat III, EAGLE, DSX, and ANGELS satellites. We have conducted spacecraft and payload environmental and functional testing, including vibration, modal test, shock, thermal cycle, and thermal vacuum testing at component, subsystem, and spacecraft levels.
