​This bay has a specially built high pressure air flow system for air-breathing rocket engine research. It has a high flow rate air and hydrogen supply up to 10 kg/s, water cooling, water-spray sound suppression, and automatic metering valves on all propellant lines. The digitally controlled metering valves can either follow a specific mass flow profile to high accuracy or else set to allow closed loop control of engine operating conditions such as chamber pressure.​​​
