LIFET4 vacuum chamber

Vacuum chamber with auxiliary chamber, connected by 250mm shutter. Moveable semicircular boom (e.g. for plasma diagnostics) at one end.

Addition of Class 7 cleanroom tent and thermal shroud (1x1x2 m³) currently in progress (expected 2018). Implementation of plasma diagnostics for electric propulsion currently planned for 2019.
