In late 2011 a Land Human Scientist LHS from the Land Operations Division LOD was briefly deployed to the Tank Automotive Research Development and Engineering Centre TARDEC to collaborate and gain understanding of how TARDEC is effectively utilising motion simulators. TARDEC has been conducting motion simulation research in the military land vehicles domain in excess of twenty years. At the time of the deployment, LOD was in the process of building its own motion simulation capability through the purchase of a large six degree of freedom LAnd Motion Platform LAMP. The main purpose of the training attachment was to acquire knowledge and skills with motion simulators so it could be applied to the LAMP. This document summarises the approaches taken by TARDEC with its motion simulation setup, why particular decisions were made, and makes recommendations for the LAMP.
