General Test Facilities
Cyth Systems is in the process of expanding its presence in the UK by setting up a commercial environmental test facility. The facility will offer world-class MIL/AERO test facilities to small commercial aerospace and other manufacturing companies in the UK and Europe. It is felt that Cyth will offer complementary facilities to those planned and already implemented at Harwell. The Cyth facility would offer vibration, vacuum and thermal-vacuum facilities for smaller spaceflight payloads and non-aerospace customers who nevertheless need to qualify hardware for survivability.
Pyro-Shock Facility (planned)
As a part of developing the business case for the new environmental test facility, Cyth are currently undertaking to establish the UK market case for offering pyrotechnic shock test capability. Pyrotechnic shock testing is used in the qualification of space flight hardware and is often required by flight vehicle manufactures to certify flight worthiness of payloads. This unique capability would support the emerging space-flight-hardware industry concentrated at Harwell, and should also be of interest to customers from the wider UK and Europe.
