The Flight Physiological Centre in Linköping is managed and operated by QinetiQ Sweden AB on behalf of the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV).
We offer a self-contained centre providing world-class training, research, and test and evaluation facilities.
Part of the aviation training, testing and research establishment located at Malmen, southern Sweden, the Centre provides facilities including:
- Dynamic Flight Simulator (that combines a Human Centrifuge and Flight Simulator)
- Hypobaric Decompression Chamber
- Hyperbaric Chamber
- Test and Survival Pool
- The Dynamic Flight Simulator has an active gondola and is used for G-force familiarisation for aircrew along with the Test and Evaluation of equipment and medical research. It is capable of replicating G conditions of next-generation fighters up to a maximum 15G with an onset rate up to 10g.s-1
- The chambers are suitable for equipment testing and training of both military and civilian personnel, with a maximum altitude of over 35,000m
- The pool can recreate adverse weather conditions and is used for survival training and equipment testing with a depth of 3.6m and a volume of 48m3. The environment is fully controlled; water temperature is controllable between 4-40 C and environmental effects can be generated (including waves, strong winds, heavy rain and lightning) to fully simulate the challenging conditions that occur during sea survival and rescue
- Additional facilities include a range of briefing, treatment and changing rooms, restaurant, plus state-of-the-art data and recording equipment
