JANA is a small thermal vacuum chamber that uses heaters and an LN2 cooled shroud inside an 18”x30” bell jar to test components at temperatures ranging from -180°C to +100°C under vacuum levels below 10-5 torr to simulate the space environment. It can also be operated at partial pressures up to 1 atm to simulate other relevant planetary surface environments.  This TVAC chamber was donated to our lab by the Sierra Nevada Corporation.
