Abstract : An important part of development of electronic packages for space use is verification of performance under expected environmental conditions. The system developed at NRL is designed to provide thermal vacuum testing of atomic clocks in the Global Positioning System (GPS). It is capable of testing all pertinent clock parameters in a preprogrammed sequence. Test durations from minutes to months may be selected. Real time as well as historical data presentation and reductions are available. (Author)
