Facility Highlights

NTS Tempe is part of the largest worldwide network of independent testing laboratories, providing expert engineering and testing services to a wide range of industries in both the commercial and military sectors.

NTS runs start-to-finish turnkey projects from a simple qualification test of a new product, to the efficient management of your complete laboratory. Our extensive knowledge of current test and conformity requirements, both domestic and international, can assist you in your product assessment and define the proper requirements for your test program to achieve maximum customer acceptance. Capabilities include more than 20 different chamber, shaker, and drop tower test platforms.

The technical personnel at NTS Tempe have extensive experience in EMI/EMC, hydraulics/pneumatics, dynamics, and environmental testing. We have the expertise to accurately monitor equipment response and performance during the most severe test environments. Our technicians and engineers are recognized experts in the performance of a wide array of environmental simulations
