Paper Abstract

The requirements for facility designs of flight motion simulators have mechanical, vibration, power, environmental, cooling, and access parameters to ensure a smooth installation. Preparing a facility interface plan during the initial phases of the procurement allows time to develop the installation area of the building. The coordination of the manufacturer, laboratory personnel, and facility personnel is essential to avoid installation problems. This paper provides a checklist of parameters and specification tradeoffs to be considered for the overall system and facility interface design.
