The U.S. Air Force awarded Environmental Tectonics Corp.'s (ETC) Training Services Group a contract, valued at more than $35 million, to provide a high-performance training and research human centrifuge. The device, ETC's Authentic Tactical Flight Simulator-400 (ATFS-400), will be manufactured at ETC's main manufacturing plant in Southampton, PA. The contract calls for delivery of the device to the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH, by August 2012. The ATFS-400 integrates a high-fidelity aircraft cockpit that incorporates a virtual tactical environment into a high-performance, fully flyable human centrifuge. Pilots can fly the ATFS like a tactical aircraft. This will be the third ATFS-400 system in the world.
