Section 357 personnel operate and maintain the Environmental Test Laboratory (ETL) in Buildings 144, 306, and the Space/Solar Simulator Facilities in Buildings 150 and 248. The ETL provides all JPL projects and external customers with complete facilities for thermal, thermal-vacuum, solar-thermal-vacuum, vibration, mechanical shock and acoustic testing for all types of space flight hardware. Expertise includes: dynamic and thermal vacuum test operations, instrumentation/data acquisition, test method consultation, "off-site" chamber certification as well as detailed test documentation.

The Laboratory's environmental testing activities are directed toward achieving accurate, reliable, cost effective and safe tests to verify compliance with design requirements in order to achieve successful missions.

Reference the "Environmental Testing" procedure to understand the process for performing in the ETL
