A CV-22 Osprey, 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 vehiclesprior to open air testing. (U.S. Air Force photo/Samuel King Jr.)
