Major 7V space chamber facility upgrade underway

From left to right, David Stanek, instrument technician; Roger Johnson, instrument technician; Josh Drumm, systems test engineer; Ed White, senior systems test engineer; Ricky Bush, outside machinist; and Aaron Wojcik, systems test engineer, at the Arnold Engineering Development Center’s 7V Space Chamber, remove an optical bench in the clean room at the seven by 21-foot test chamber. The bench’s removal is part of a major upgrade project that began with the chamber’s demolition by Western Environmental, Inc. The changes will not significantly affect the size of the facility. Some of the improvements to the chamber will include changing the airflow from horizontal to vertical and changing the chamber to a class 1,000 (number of particles per million) clean room.
