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 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 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 provides the ultimate versatility in a high-G flight simulator. The ATFS-400 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.
ETC's human centrifuges provide a realistic training environment in real time so aircrews can learn how to recognize and combat the effects of G-Induced Loss of Consciousness (GLOC), a serious problem for high performance aircraft pilots.
Through four product generations, ETC has transformed the human centrifuge from a passive G trainer into an authentic operational flight simulator.
Pilots experience the actual physical stresses of flight in the entire flight envelope providing confidence and a point of reference when adverse flight conditions are experienced in a tactical environment.
The ATFS-400 accurately replicates the unique stresses of a spaceflight environment for training and testing orbital nominal and off nominal trajectories for humans and payloads.
