Abstract

The STG-CT, operated by the DLR Institute for Aerodynamics and Flow Technology in Göttingen, is a vacuum facility specifically designed to provide and maintain a space-like vacuum environment for researching plume flow and plume impingement from satellite reaction control thrusters. lts unique liquid-helium driven cryopump of 30m2 allows maintaining a background pressure <1QA-5 mbar even when molecular hydrogen is a plume constituent.
