Solar Radiation Testing WSMR has the capability to perform the MIL-STD-810 solar radiation (heating effects) test. Solar intensities up to 370 BTU per square foot per hour (1120 Watts per square meter per hour) are supplied by suspended lamp banks. Five quartz lamp banks, each approximately 15´ wide by 17´ long, can be suspended end to end in the Temperature Test Facility (TTF) large test chamber or singularly in the TTF small test chamber or in the multi-purpose Hot Chamber. In addition, a smaller quartz lamp bank (7´ wide by 15´ long) can be utilized in smaller chambers.
