The Swiss Space Center has the following facilities, which can be made available to interested persons:

  • Cleanroom
  • Vacuum chamber
  • Rotating table
  • Concurrent Design Facility (CDF at eSpace)

The CDF is an environment where engineers of different specialties come together to perform system engineering study for a project.

The design process is facilitated by co-location of specialists in one room with access to all necessary information and tools special software that enables instantaneous data exchange during the design process CDFs are now established in ESA and NASA research centers as well as in the industry.

These facilities are widely used to conduct preliminary design studies to estimate costs, consider trade-offs and review proposals.

Primary direction for CDF development: Improvement of quality of education.
