The RIPI’s Metrology Service is equipped with state-of-the-art measuring stock, ensuring radio-engineering, electrotechnical, linear, angular, temperature measurements, etc.
High qualification of our experienced metrology staff, availability of standards, nomenclature and the required number of measuring instruments allow conducting the following types of work in accordance with the accreditation scope:
Products for space applications are exposed to complex interaction of various external factors when in operation in space, so their performance capability and long service life directly depends on their ability to withstand extreme environment. Confirmation that the tactical/technical characteristics correspond to the data specified for this product being under the influence of external factors is carried out at the stages of manufacturing and performing on-site final testing/adjustment procedures (OTAP). The test laboratory possesses a fleet of special testing equipment and measuring instruments needed for the tasks to be undertaken.
OTAP – is one of the main ways for qualitatively and quantitatively assessing the equipment for compliance with the requirements specified in a technical project.
Within the framework of the OTAP, experiments and investigations, monitoring of equipment parameters and their comparison with the nominal values, diagnostics and identification of reasons of deviation (if any); elimination of causes and debugging are carried out.
Besides that, the test laboratory shall provide the equipment designers with the test equipment certified according to GOST R 8.568-2017:
The experienced laboratory specialists ensure that the necessary modes for external influencing factors are set and monitored during tests; as well as conduct measurements; participate in the development of testing programs and methods.
Within the laboratory, it is possible to carry out a wide range of tests, such as boundary, endurance, testing for transportation, the effects of frost, dew, resistance, insulation breakdown and electrostatic discharges and so on.
The test laboratory allows conducting the following types of tests:
for exposure to:
for exposure to:
for exposure under vacuum conditions no worse than 1.33 x 10-6 mm Hg to:
