The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has selected BiomedTech Australia to provide hypoxia training systems to the new Air Academy at East Sale.

Hypoxia – the condition in which the brain is deprived of oxygen – has been linked to a number of fatal aircraft accidents in the past and is considered to be one of the biggest dangers in aviation. The Biomedtech Go2Altitude solution will deliver a two-seat cockpit procedural trainer (CPT) and an integrated six-seat classroom to deliver hypoxia training that will include identification and recognition of symptoms – the critically important aspect of being able to overcome the condition.

As well as general awareness and recognition education, the integrated CPT will deliver training specifically configured for the PC-21 ground trainers recently supplied by Lockheed Martin. Required gases are generated within the system using a proprietary molecular sieve-based air-separation technology.

A suite of neurocognitive tests will facilitate the educational component and the system can interface quickly and easily with a flight simulator so that entire crews or even aircraft formations can train simultaneously.
