dis research device

The Naval Medical Research Unit Dayton (NAMRU-D) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is Navy Medicine's world-class, global aeromedical and toxicology research leader. NAMRU-D conducts aeromedical and environmental health research to maximize performance and help the warfighter survive.

This Navy photo shows NAMRU-D's Disorientation Research Device (DRD). This one-of-a-kind research platform is capable of multi-axis motion as experienced by up to two subjects in yaw, pitch, roll, and heave while undergoing planetary and linear accelerations, up to 3Gz sustained. The DRD provides an unmatched authenticity in vehicular motion; all can be controlled by the subject as a man-in-the-loop research system.
