Was wondering what benefits there are to testing a cubesat in an anechoic chamber? As I understand it, the chamber itself will not be going to ISS, only the cubesat.



Hi, this is Daniel from the University of Kentucky. The point of the acoustic test wasn't specifically for the cubesat, it was to see how the cubesat would affect the ISS, specifically the astronauts, in terms of sound levels. We did the test in the anechoic chamber to block out any ambient noise, reflected noise, etc.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
