Raytracing Sun Simulation


Sun simulation performance can be accurately predicted by validated raytracing simulation tools developed for the Large Space Simulator (LSS) and VTC1.5 thermal vacuum facilities.

The main advantages are:

  • Homogeneity and collimation angle can be accurately predicted for any specific set of customer requirements
  • Impingement on volumetric features can be accurately simulated prior to test, taking into account not only irradiance levels but also collimation angle
  • Specific test customer instruments can be simulated in great details, including spill over and stray light phenomena


Available validated simulation platforms are available for the Large Space Simulator and VTC-1.5.
