Next-Generation Satellite Testing and Manufacturing

August 4, 2017

Lockheed Martin recently announced construction of a new 266,000 square-foot, $350 million satellite manufacturing facility near Denver, CO.  The facility, for which CGA is providing vibration and acoustic consulting, is intended to consolidate key aspects of satellite production in a single facility.  This consolidation brings multiple challenges from a noise and vibration standpoint, as numerous unique noise and vibration sources will be placed in close proximity to noise-sensitive acoustical test chambers, vibration-sensitive slant range testing, and other sensitive procedures.  CGA has worked closely with the design team to develop unique solutions to ensure that the project’s acoustic and vibration criteria are met.
