The lab is on the National Register of Historic Places and is home to a climatic chamber where testing has been conducted on all military aircraft since 1947. Any climate environment can be simulated within the lab, according to the lab’s website.

Private companies, such as American automakers and military contractors, also use the chamber to test their products.

Temperatures can range between -65 degrees Fahrenheit and 165 degrees Fahrenheit, and the chamber can also simulate snow, rain wind, sand and dust.
