A U.S. Air Force CV-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft, belonging to the 8th Special Operations Squadron, hangs in the anechoic chamber at the joint preflight integration of munitions and electronic systems (J-PRIMES) hangar at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., March 6, 2012. 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.
