Hypobaric Chamber Experience

Rothe’s chamber experience began in 1969 with the design and installation of a Rapid Decompression Chamber for the Manned Orbital Laboratory, developed to support early US Air Force and NASA manned space station concepts.  Rothe continued various chamber developments and installations for customers such as Brooks Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston, Methodist Hospital San Antonio, and other hyperbaric treatment & research centers.

Today, Rothe is a subcontractor on the USAF’s Hypobaric Altitude Chambers Program and maintains multiple subject matter experts trained in operations, maintenance, and engineering of hypobaric chambers.
