One of E Tech Group’s- Life Sciences East customer is the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab. The lab supplies space craft programs to NASA for scientific research. Life Sciences East supports one of their test facilities maintaining the industrial control systems of the Thermal Vacuum chambers.
One of the missions John Hopkins University tested in the facility LSE supports is getting ready to come to a SMASHING conclusion later this month. JHU tested the DART spacecraft in their lab. The DART mission is NASA’s demonstration of kinetic impactor technology, impacting an asteroid to adjust its speed and path. The Dart spacecraft is scheduled to crash into the asteroid on September 26, 2022.
Several people from LSE have worked on projects supporting JHU during the 6 years they have been a customer to maintain and upgrade the systems at JHU.
