NAMRU-D research capabilities in the visual, vestibular, and cognitive sciences are supported by a unique collection of state-of-the-science equipment and research devices. NAMRU-D’s human-rated motion platforms include the Disorientation Research Device (DRD), the Visual Vestibular Sphere Device (VVSD), the Vertical Linear Accelerator (VLA), and the Neuro-Otologic Test Center (NOTC). Each device is capable of unique motion profiles, affording independent control of visual and vestibular stimuli to isolate sensory interactions associated with spatial disorientation and motion sickness. NAMRU-D’s hypoxia program is supported by a lab suite capable of running up to six Reduced Oxygen Breathing Devices, each of which can simulate altitude exposures at up to 34k' under normobaric conditions. NAMRU-D facilities also house a vision suite containing a full array of ophthalmic equipment.
