The 92,900m3 (3.28 million ft3) Main Chamber of the Climatic Laboratory (Figure 1) is the largest and most complex climatic environmental test chamber in the world. It employs an air makeup system to cool or heat air to the test temperatures and ingest this air into the chamber to allow the operation of jet engines during climatic tests.

Other test chambers discussed are the 2,750 m3 (97,000 ft3) Engine and Equipment Test Facility and the 2,125 m3 (75,000 ft3) Sun, Wind, Rain, and Dust Facility.
