Artemis II Orion Service Module Completes Acoustic Testing at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center
By Space Coast Daily // May 13, 2023
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Engineers recently completed a series of acoustic tests on the European Service Module for NASA’s Artemis II mission while inside the Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Building at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
During the testing, engineers surrounded the service module with large speakers and attached microphones, accelerometers, and other equipment to measure the effects of different acoustic levels.
Engineers and technicians will analyze the data collected during the tests to ensure the service module can withstand the speed and vibration it will experience during launch and throughout the mission.
With this test complete, the team is on track to integrate Orion’s crew and service modules together later this year.
