In 2005, the Space Systems Laboratory (SSL) completed the Advanced Robotics Development Laboratory, a complete spacecraft integration facility that includes rapid prototyping equipment, a class 10,000 cleanroom, high-precision metrology instrumentation, a thermal chamber, and a thermal vacuum chamber.
This unique facility is located in the University of Maryland's Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building. The SSL is also a partner in the Virtual Reality Laboratory, housed in the same building.
