Leonardo Case Study

Design and build of a new fully anechoic military hardware test facility chamber and a high performance chamber.

Project Details

Client: Leonardo
Location: Basildon, UK
Job Specification:

  • Design and build new 8m x 5.1m x 3.6m EMC test chamber, fully anechoic (fitted with ferrite (FAR) and RLT 450 Pyramidal Hybrid Absorbers).
  • Move an existing screened room 3.5m x 3.5m x 2.4m and connected to new EMC chamber to make a 4.2m x 2.4m x 2.4m instrument control room with a single knife penetration panel (400mm x 400mm) and single bolt-on penetration panel (400mm x 400mm) for RF connectors.
  • Supply new 2.5m x 2.5m x 2.5m screened chamber - Shielding Tested >120dB
  • To move a large screened room 16ft x 12ft x 8ft and re-site in production area

The Challenge


This was an interesting project due to the dismantling and reassembly of the old chambers, and the attachment of one chamber to another. The new site location for the chambers provided some challenges as it was not able to accommodate the size of the chambers, the ceilings in the building had to be removed to enable the chambers to fit into the building. Despite the challenges, the project was successfully completed and to customer satisfaction.
