Anechoic Test Facility

The Anechoic Test Facility is a versatile test environment offering research & development opportunities for a range of aircraft, vehicles and systems.

Anechoic Chamber

Its novel elliptical design works effectively over a wide range of frequencies to meet varied test requirements. Offering scientifically repeatable testing of military and commercial systems under controlled conditions, we’re supported by our expert servicing engineers. The building’s unique construction ensures that extraneous Radio Frequency emissions do not interfere with test results, while the Radio Frequency isolation ensures accuracy of results.
