Altitude Testing Services and Simulation Facility

Rocky Mountain Testing Solutions features altitude simulation testing services, important for manufacturers of products that might be shipped via air. It is also especially important for defense, military, and aerospace applications where pressure and vacuum conditions are even more intense. Altitude testing will help determine what atmospheric pressure your product or package can endure using today's mixed-environment testing requirements. Our temperature/altitude chambers simulate a combination of conditions seen below sea level up to 100,000 feet while cycling between hot and cold temperatures. For example, we can conduct high altitude, temperature, and humidity simulation in one chamber including DO-160 Icing testing. The same chamber can be used to simulate rapid pressure change from 15,000 to 70,000 feet in 15 seconds with high-speed data compression for avionics cabin pressure testing. RMTS can precisely simulate any real-life conditions a product might face and our test equipment allows for a wide range of altitude test profiles to be performed.

    Our temperature and temperature/altitude chambers are capable of producing conditions to meet the following testing standards:

  • MIL-STD 810F method 500.4, 501.4, 502.4
  • USCAR (United States Council for Automotive Research)
  • RTCA/DO-160
  • ASTM
  • ISTA
  • SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers)
  • EIA (Electronic Industries Alliance)
  • JEDEC (Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council)
  • JIC testing standards
  • Customer specified

    Our specific altitude testing lab capabilities:

  • Temperature range: -94°F to +350°F (-70°C to +177°C)
  • 5°C/min temperature change rate
  • 100 feet below sea level up to 100,000 feet - high altitude
  • Rapid decompression

Apart from commercial and military aerospace applications, our altitude testing services are used for automotive tests to simulate rugged, mountainous conditions, to test computers, and to test electronics and packaging materials that may be shipped via air freight.

RMTS will conduct your altitude testing project according to the exact requirements specified. We will consult with you on a customized climatic test program allowing for a very close approximation of the actual conditions facing your product. When testing is completed, you'll receive a detailed report regarding logical layout, conclusions, and recommendations. Contact us if you're ready to test now or if you need assistance in developing an altitude test specification.
