Industrial Acoustics is to supply two engine/aircraft test centres with noise suppressors to the Taiwan air force. The deal coincided with the acceptance of a "hush house" built by the New York-based company at the air force's Chiayi air base. A second hush house for the Hualien air base is under construction. The houses will support ground run-up operations for any fighter in the Taiwanese inventory. The new purchase will include hush houses and cells to test engines out of the airframe.
