Project Test & Operations

Most noted for the very large Spacecraft Assembly Facility (SAF) consisting of two large clean rooms capable of class 100,000 or better and adjacent test complex. Spacecraft and large instruments, such as Viking Orbiters, Voyager Missions, Galileo, Hubble Space Telescope/Wide Field Planetary Camera, SIR-C/X-SAR and NSCAT, to name a few, were tested and assembled in SAF.
