Training Equipment 9.

  • The STS-400 is a high fidelity interactive virtual space flight simulator that is integrated into a high performance "flyable" centrifuge motion platform. The STS-400 features powered pitch and roll gimbals to precisely position the gondola so the trainee can experience accelerations in +/-Gx, +/-Gy, and +/-Gz.

STS-400Space Training System 10.

  • STS-400 Cockpit
  • The STS-400 is designed for interchangeable cockpit modules (TACModules) with floor level access.Various cockpit & cabin configurations are available in single or dual seats.


  • Space Mission Simulator
  • The GYROLAB provides a simulated space flight environment for training in rapidly varying flight conditions.Space crew are trained to maintain control of their spacecraft while ignoring false information from their vestibular system. Interactive flight profiles allow trainees to practice adaptive techniques and countermeasures.


  • The hypobaric chamber trains personnel in altitude indoctrination flights. This includes pressure breathing exercises, hypoxia training, rapid decompression, oxygen equipment use, and emergency procedures.

HYPOBARIC CHAMBER High Altitude Training System 13.

  • The ESS is a training platform to practice the decision making, psychomotor skills, and body positioning prior to making an ejection decision.It incorporates state of the art design and technology to assure safe, injury free and effective ejection training.

Ejection Seat Simulator 14.

  • World Class Instruction
  • The AeroMedical Training Institute (AMTI), which has been incorporated into NASTAR Center,remains the premier, worldwide training and curriculum development business unit of ETC.
    • AMTIs tailored training programs factor in customer training requirements, personnel and crew demographics, types of missions supported and types of aircraft flown.
    • AMTI offers courses that complement the use of NASTAR Center equipment as well as stand-alone courses.
    • AMTI produces all of the training profiles that are resident in the NASTAR Center equipment.
