With the reduction of in-aircraft flight hours and an increase in flight simulator use, it is imperative that the next generation of flight training include a complementary system that provides full motion—G on demand and sustained G forces—for pilots to optimally maintain their requisite G Tolerance and G Readiness. Training in the ATFS-400-25 human centrifuge provides an alternative, realistic, G on demand and sustained high G flight environment that allows pilots to maintain requisite G Tolerance and G Readiness without the use of a live aircraft.

The ATFS-400-25 human centrifuge dynamically generates G-forces in all desired axes simultaneously to authentically replicate the stresses of the tactical flight environment.
With aviation and space training applications available, along with high definition and night vision compatibility, the ATFS-400-25 human centrifuge provides the ultimate versatility in a high-G human centrifuge. The ATFS-400-25 system leverages on advanced simulation capabilities to recreate a wide variety of training and operational scenarios, from entry level to advanced tactical flying, exposing the aviator to a realistic flight environment with physiological stressors.
Interchangeable, linkable cockpits modules provide for unprecedented training flexibility, whether as standalone operational flight simulators (OFS), part of a network of data-linked cockpit modules operating in a common battlespace, or integrated into the ATFS-400-25 human centrifuge.
With aviation and space training applications available, the ATFS-400-25 provides the ultimate versatility in a high-G human centrifuge.
Generating sustained G forces of up to 15G and onset rate of 8G/s from idle 1.4G, ATFS-400-25 is capable of providing G training that meets and exceeds the training protocols adopted by various organizations, including the STANAG and USAF standards.
With realistic flyable cockpit interior and wide field of view visuals, the ATFS-400 pilot assumes flight of the centrifuge and experiences the G forces as they occur in the actual aircraft, enabling an immersive, holistic exposure of physiological stresses in a flight environment, including rapid G onsets and push-pull effect.
In the ATFS-400, pilots can experience the actual physical stresses of flight in the entire flight envelope in a tactical flight scenario, providing a level of confidence and preparedness when adverse flight conditions are experienced in a realistic mission environment.
The ATFS-400-25 accurately replicates the unique physiological stresses of a spaceflight environment for training and testing orbital nominal and off nominal trajectories for humans and payloads.
The ATFS-400-25 offers a highly controllable environment for testing and research in a multiaxial High-G acceleration and simulated flight motion with an array of biosensors available for data collection and analysis.
