Altitude Testing

Altitude Tests

NTS has been performing altitude testing on commercial aviation equipment since the 1970s. Our altitude testing capabilities include straight altitude tests up to 100,000 feet (30,000m) as well as multi-variate tests combining altitude, temperature and humidity, as well as altitude/vibration tests and rapid and explosive decompression testing. NTS altitude test chambers can accommodate components, materials, subassemblies and complete devices in altitude chambers ranging from the very small up to the very large. Our ramp up rate for standard altitude testing is 0 to 100,000 ft (30,000m) in less than 5 minutes. For explosive decompression, less than a second. Temperature capabilities range from the low -300°F (-180°C) to +400°F (+200°C). And if you want your equipment to fly higher, our hi-vacuum, space simulation facilities will take it to 10-6 Torr (1.3e-7 kPa).

Altitude testing is available at nearly all NTS facilities coast-to-coast. Contact your local lab today for more information about Altitude Testing at NTS.
