Project Description

With more than 35 000 000 space debris orbiting arround satellites, vulnerability assessment face to hypervelocity impacts has become a mandatory step for satellite development. THIOT INGENIERIE collaborates with IMPETUS AFEA and the French National Space Center (CNES) to modelize satellite tank explosion when impacted at 6 km/s by an aluminum sphere. The vizualisation provided has been realized with flash x ray (40 ns) photograph.
