This facility is located 2 miles from the main post area and is approved for the testing of hazardous (explosive) test items up to 30,000 lbs.
It is the largest explosive licensed temperature test facility within the DOD.
Its three chambers are multipurpose. The Large (105´ l x 40´ w x 50´ h) and Small (35´ l x 30´ w x 20´ h) Test Chambers can perform high/low temperature and freezing rain testing.
The Large Test Chamber has been used to conduct environmental tests of complete weapon systems, to include operator functional tests of the system at temperature.
The Salt Fog/Humidity Chamber (20 x 15 x 10 ft.), as its name implies, can perform salt fog, humidity, and high temperature testing.
