WSMR has the capability to perform a wide variety of Climatic Tests.
WSMR maintains climatic environmental test chambers capable of high and low temperature, temperature shock, solar radiation, low pressure (high altitude), salt fog, rain (rain with wind), snow loading, icing/freezing rain, sand and dust, humidity, fungus and leakage testing.
A digital data acquisition system is used to acquire and process data. The system has the capability of acquiring data ranging from -100 degrees F to 300 degrees F with an accuracy of ±1 degree for up to 150 channels. In addition, up to twenty transducers data channels (pressure, radiation intensity, etc) can be acquired with an accuracy of ±0.2 percent. The same type of data acquisition system is used for both remote and fixed sites.
