Space Applications

Thermal Vacuum Chamber Testing for Satellites
ECCOSORB® SF, be tuned to reduce reflections inside a ground based thermal vacuum chamber. See below for successful applications
• Inmarsat IV Satellite, ECCOSORB® SF-2.2
• Japanese GPS Satellite, ECCOSORB® SF-1.2/SS6M
• Several US Satellites ECCOSORB® SF-1.5
• Argentinean Earth Resource Satellites, ECCOSORB® SF-1.275

Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) on AURA Spacecraft
ECCOSORB® BSR-1/SS6M, is used to cover the entire surface of the inside of the quasi-optical bench that holds mirrors, dichroic beam splitters and polarizers that split up the incoming signal to different wavelength receivers. The BSR-1/SS6M prevents the scattering of the radar beam that would give false readings of wavelength intensity
