Radio anechoic chamber tiling. These tiles line the walls of chambers used to study and test radio equipment. The arrangement and shape of the tiles minimises echoes (the reflection of radio waves), providing the conditions needed for radio tests. These tiles are in a chamber used to test space equipment. Photographed at the Maxwell test chamber operated by the European Space Agency (ESA) at ESTEC (the European Space Research and Technology Centre) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. These facilities are used for electromagnetic compatibility testing, ensuring all systems aboard a satellite can operate together without harmful interference. Image published in 2016.
