A full-scale Orion model recently [May 2009] underwent testing at the Johnson Space Center in an anechoic chamber. Orion’s antennas were tested in the chamber, which absorbs all sound waves and other electromagnetic energy.
These tests were performed to more closely mimic the environment of space. NASA conducted similar tests the Apollo and shuttle programs in this and other facilities.
