CE: Laboratory Facilities

In December 2006, the majority of Central Engineer staff and engineering laboratories were relocated to newly constructed facilities at Cambridge Discovery Park. As part of the building's construction, CE had the opportunity to custom design state-of-the-art engineering laboratories that could accommodate the assembly, integration, and test of both large instruments for the current generation of ground based telescopes; and fully qualified space flight instruments.

The large assembly and test laboratory was also designed with provisions for expansion, to accommodate the construction of instruments for the proposed next generation of very large ground based telescopes.
