CV-22 Osprey hangs in chamber for warfare testing


A CV-22 Osprey, flown by the 8th Special Operations Squadron in Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. hangs in the anechoic chamber at the Joint Preflight Integration of Munitions and Electronic Systems hangar.

The Osprey is currently in the chamber for approximately four weeks to test upgraded electronic warfare systems. The J-PRIMES anechoic chamber is a room designed to stop internal reflections of electromagnetic waves, as well as insulate from exterior sources of electromagnetic noise. J-PRIMES provides this environment to facilitate testing air-to-air and air-to-surface munitions and electronics systems on full-scale aircraft and land vehicles prior to open air testing.

The CV-22 Osprey is a tiltrotor aircraft that combines the vertical takeoff, hover and vertical landing qualities of a helicopter with the long-range, fuel efficiency and speed characteristics of a turboprop aircraft. Its mission is to conduct long-range infiltration, exfiltration and resupply missions for special operations forces.

    The structure for your web site is a tad off in Epiphany. Even So I like your blog. I might have to install a normal web browser just to enjoy it.
