At the Ames Simulation Laboratories (SimLabs), we bring your design concepts to virtual life. We pair innovative minds in the real world with the latest technology in a virtual world for a combination that is out of this world!
From concept to test to final design, our facilities can simulate it all – be it focused on flight deck integration or as expansive as interplanetary vehicle operations. Experience unsurpassed motion at the Vertical Motion Simulator (VMS), immersive visuals at FutureFlight Central (FFC), full-mission capability support at the Crew-Vehicle Systems Research Facility (CVSRF), and realistic interfaces for Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and Human Landing Systems (HLS) research.
SimLabs supports a wide range of research in aerospace systems and operations, human factors, and aviation safety. Our customizable state-of-the-art simulation facilities are available to develop your future concepts and technologies.
