The Chiba Experiment Station, one of the facilities of IIS, was transferred from its original site at Yayoi-cho, Nishi-Chiba to the Kashiwa Campus in April 2017. The Station has historically played important roles in accommodating large-scale research facilities and hosting experimental work that cannot be performed at Komaba II Campus in downtown Tokyo.
The following new buildings have been established:
1.Building I: Spacious aircraft hangar-like test site;
2.Building II: Test site equipped with an ocean engineering basin;
3.Field test site for large-scale ITS research; and,
4.Tensegrity frame system (White Rhino II) with self-stress and flexible characteristics.
