Dr Joice Matthew and Director Eduardo Trifoni
The National Space Test Facility, hosted by ANU, enables the development of major space missions through severe space environmental testing of satellites, payloads, sub systems, and components.

The NSTF is recognised by the industry across Australia and New Zealand as a hub for space environmental testing of prototype spacecraft and is a one-stop-shop testing facility for space environment qualification, with all the capabilities and instrumentation required to provide the best mission assurance prior to launch.

The NSTF provides access to unique space environmental testing capabilities, such as thermal vacuum, vibration, pyroshock, electromagnetic interference/compatibility, LEO atomic oxygen interaction, and the use of a large cleanroom for assembly and integration activities.

The NSTF is unique in the global university landscape for providing research services to the space community.
