NTS Orlando, previously Qualtest, serves the needs of our aerospace, defense, military, medical and commercial clients from two test facilities in central Florida. NTS Orlando offers an extensive array of test services delivered by an experienced and resourceful team dedicated to servicing the testing needs of aerospace, defense and a variety of commercial customers. Quality is recognized by many as a crucial aspect of conducting any successful test program and is a deeply held value at NTS Orlando. Customers can be assured of this commitment to quality by NTS Orlando's A2LA and NVLAP ISO/IEC 17025 laboratory accreditations.

Environmental Testing
NTS Orlando offers temperature, humidity, altitude, rapid decompression, thermal vacuum, explosive atmosphere, solar heating effects, thermal shock, blowing sand, blowing dust, blowing rain, and salt fog.  We also have the ability to operate controls such as buttons, switches and joysticks in harsh environmental conditions hostile to human presence, and can offer more detailed manipulation via a Motoman SV3 Robot.

Dynamics Testing
NTS Orlando offers acceleration testing, mechanical shock testing (free-fall and shaker), transportation simulation, drop testing, and vibration testing.  In addition, NTS Orlando maintains a U.S. Navy certified lightweight hammer shock machine capable of accommodating the associated MIL-S-901D testing requirements.  NTS Orlando is also accredited by the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) as a Certified Testing Laboratory for package testing procedures 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 2A and 2B.
