Altitude Testing

Altitude Testing

Products and equipment used at excessive heights need to be durable enough to withstand the extreme conditions they will face. Accurately replicating temperature, humidity, and atmospheric conditions requires specially design facilities in which controlled, precise altitude testing can be performed.


The vacuum chamber is useful especially for simulating certain environmental conditions in air transport. Indeed, it is possible to create a vacuum that is outside the prototype, set, subassembly or tested component that can vary up to 70,000 feet. It makes it possible to obtain the simulation of different climatic environments simultaneously. Tests of this type make it possible to demonstrate several types of defects due to altitude and oxygen depreciation. These include deformation, breakage, overheating, insulation failure, design defects, etc.


Our altitude testing capabilities meet the RTCA/DO-160, MIL-STD-810G and GM 16288 requirements.


Our altitude testing capabilities include:

-      Up to 50 mb (70,000 feet max)

-      From -50 to + 30 degrees Celsius

-      Decompression time 2s +
