The CSIR boasts the largest and best equipped wind-tunnel complex on the continent. Seven wind tunnels and a water tunnel, varying from the large 7m low speed wind tunnel to the smaller high speed wind tunnel, offer a test and evaluation capability up to 4,5 times the speed of sound. These facilities are backed by world-class instrumentation and measurement capabilities and a team of experts with experience that includes not only local aeronautical achievements relating to the Rooivalk, Umkhonto missile and ACE trainer, but also international experience on Eurofighter and Aermacchi.
