Abstract : This report represents the use of human occupants in the full scale motion base simulation of an M2-A2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle Turret using the Crew Station/Turret Motion Base Simulator. The test objective was to provide a controlled, repeatable and safe human-in-the-loop test scenario to the BFV turret. This report documents the results of using human occupants as test subjects in laboratory motion base simulation.
