Abstract:
Anticipated high agility aircraft will require pilot training and acceleration research to investigate the human capacity to function in the projected environment. Existing man-rated centrifuges and fixed-base simulators are capable of imposing only a portion of the entire envelope of accelerations, and often produce significant artifactual accelerations and illusions. Simulations and engineering analysis of a large radius track centrifuge indicate such a device could impose an acceleration environment suitable for training and research. The technology required for the concept is estimated to be feasible in the near future.
