Research facilities in ULyS3ES-1 include equipment for functional testing of small satellite components and integrated systems, “clean booths” for small satellite assembly, a thermal-vacuum chamber for space environment testing of nanosatellites, as well as rapid prototyping equipment. It also houses the Engineering Model (EM) of the 50 kg microsatellite, Diwata-2, and a Flight Model (FM) of the 1 kg nanosatellite, Maya-1. These satellite models are functional replicas of the actual satellites that were deployed in space and are used as testbeds for further experimentation, research and instruction.
