Successful Qualification Testing of the ILIS1 Vacuum Fueling Station

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Despite major setbacks yesterday with the failed vacuum pump testing, I do have some good news and progress. The in-vacuum fueling station for the ILIS1 has been completed, and has passed testing. Here is a video of the full loading cycle. It’s slow, but I’d rather not yeet the glass emitters!

Here is a shot of the fueling station loaded into the chamber for a final test fit. I am hoping to do a live stream of the thruster fueling in vacuum when I get pumping capabilities again and schedule the actual test date.
