SSC Pacific has extensive facilities and equipment that can be made available to industry under a CRADA. We have highlighted a few of our facilites and laboratories below. Contact us for more information.
Antenna Pattern Range (APR) - The Antenna Pattern Range (APR) features a non-metallic arch with a trolley to move the transmit antenna from the horizon to zenith. At the center of the ground plane, a turntable rotates the Antenna Under Test (AUT) 360 degrees to capture full hemisphere radiation patterns.
Bioassay Laboratory - The Bioassay Laboratory is an accredited laboratory capable of conducting standardized and innovative environmental testing in the area of aquatic ecotoxicology. The laboratory is accredited by the states of California and Washington through the Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP).
Communications and Information Sharing (CIS) Laboratory - The Communications and Information Sharing (CIS) Laboratory is a Public Safety interoperable communications technology laboratory with analog and digital radios, and interoperable communications gateway technologies.
Environmental Test Facility (ETF) - The Environmental Test Facility (ETF) provides non-isolated shock testing for stand-alone equipment and full size cabinets under MIL-S-901D specifications. The ETF also provides vibration testing. IAW MIL-STD-167A and MIL-STD-810G. MIL-STD-810G is also used for guidance in the Temperature and Humidity testing that the ETF performs.
High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryption (HAIPE) Test Laboratory - The High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryption (HAIPE) Test Laboratory develops and maintains HAIPE, IPMEIR, and NATO NINE interoperability specifications and Management Information Bases (MIBs). In addition, the HAIPE Lab develops and maintains software test tools in order to verify requirement conformance of industry produced HAIPE products. The HAIPE Lab also conducts PEER-to-PEER HAIPE device testing in a network environment to provide an additional level of conformance and confidence in device interoperability.
High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) - The High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) provides advanced hardware, software, and support personnel for users and projects in modeling and simulation, engineering, and computational sciences. The HPCC machines operate at various classification levels.
Mobile User Objective Systems (MUOS) Reference Implementation Laboratory (MRIL) - The Mobile User Objective Systems (MUOS) Reference Implementation Laboratory (MRIL) performs verification and validation testing of various MUOS terminals. MRIL also provides an assessment of MUOS waveform portability and compliance to MUOS Terminal requirements.
Positioning Navigation and Timing System Integration Laboratory (PNT SIL) - The Positioning Navigation and Timing System Integration Laboratory (PNT SIL) is currently used for a number of PNT system development test and evaluation activities, and provides technical support services.
Transducer Evaluation Center (TRANSDEC) - The Transducer Evaluation Center (TRANSDEC) facility is a controlled environment with low ambient noise and a conveniently accessible underwater transducer calibration and test facility which simulates open ocean properties. It is also used for wet testing of sensors and systems in a controlled underwater environment.
