A highly versatile, advanced motion platform

The KRAKEN is a highly versatile motion platform, suitable for cutting-edge human factors research and flight training for all types of aircraft. For example, in aviation, areas of application include but are not limited to Spatial Disorientation (SD), loss of control in flight (LOCI), upset recovery scenarios, human factors research, mishap recreation, as well as many others.

Cockpit Design and Interface

The gondola of the KRAKEN disorientation device can be configured to simulate the cockpit of the vehicle specified by the customer and accommodates up to two occupants. Active controls and switches can be installed such that the GL-6000 disorientation device is operated like a simulator for the vehicle of choice. For example, realistic aircraft cockpits can be replicated with authentic flight controls, throttles, pedals and switches so that it can be flown in a virtual flight environment based on the aeromodel appropriate for that aircraft type.

KRAKEN SD Trainer

Capable of creating highly complex motion patterns with sustained acceleration

The multi-axes motion platform is capable of creating highly complex motion patterns with sustained acceleration, providing an excellent opportunity for research and training on the extremes of human psychological challenges.
