One of the ATLAS experiment's upgrade to take place in 2018 consists in the construction of new muon chambers. A third of these gaseous detectors (so-called "thin gap chambers") will be built and tested in Canada. The performance of the first prototype chamber was investigated in a test beam at Fermilab in May 2014. A description of the test setup at Fermilab as well as preliminary results will be presented.
