Research & Innovation

Research & Innovation

terraXcube’s climactic chambers offer fully replicable conditions in a safe, accessible and controllable envronment, where scientists can explore the adaptability of the human body, plants and entire ecosystems to extreme altitude and climate conditions.

Testing Services

Testing Services

Our climate chambers expose products, materials and machines to extreme climatic conditions in order to test and potentially optimise their durability and functionality – particularly useful before the start of certification processes.

Training

Training

Extreme climatic conditions make work and rescue operations more arduous and sometimes even impossible. In the chambers of the terraXcube, subjects, while being controlled and monitored, can train for these activities under extreme conditions and test their interaction with machines.
