The European Space Research and Technology Centre is the European Space Agency's main technology development and test centre for spacecraft and space technology. It is situated in Noordwijk, South Holland, in the western Netherlands, although several kilometers off the village but immediately linked to the most Northern district of the nearby town Katwijk.
At ESTEC, about 2500 engineers, technicians and scientists work hands-on with mission design, spacecraft and space technology. ESTEC provides extensive testing facilities to verify the proper operation of spacecraft, such as the Large Space Simulator , acoustic and electromagnetic testing bays, multi-axis vibration tables and the ESA Propulsion Laboratory . Prior to launch, almost all of the equipment that ESA launches is tested in some degree at ESTEC.
