The G-LAB is a basic, cost-effective human centrifuge that replicates the G performance levels and research needs of today's fifth generation aircraft. This legacy system has been effectively meeting the acceleration physiology training needs of armed forces worldwide for more than 50 years, including USAF and US Navy.
The G-LAB is a basic, cost-effective human centrifuge that replicates the G performance levels and research needs of today's fifth generation aircraft.
The G-LAB’s capability of generating up to 15 GZ supports high-g training, human research, and instrument testing up to and beyond the performance capability of most present day aircraft.
The gondola’s roll motion is free-swinging, but damped in order to avoid oscillations. For training applications, the G-LAB Motion Platform is designed to provide refresher as well as initial tolerance training.
Realistic training is enhanced by out-the-window visual display system and the ability for a pilot to track a target aircraft using a realistic aircraft control stick.
Generating sustained G forces of up to 15G and onset rate of 6G/s from idle 1.2G, G-LAB is capable of providing G training that meets and exceeds the training protocols adopted by various organizations, including the STANAG and USAF standards.
The G-LAB supports basic system testing and physiology research under sustained G environment, through the use of biomonitors such as the pulse rate sensors and electrocardiography.
