Anti-G Straining Manoeuvres Trainer

Helps to prevent G-LOC
G-induced Loss of Consciousness (G-LOC) is a constant threat to high performance aircraft pilots. Due to a phenomenon referred to as retrograde amnesia, which may occur during G-LOC, the pilot does not remember losing consciousness or control of aircraft


The most sensitive areas to acceleration forces are the cardiovascular system, the pulmonary system and the central nervous system


AGSM training improves the pilot’s safety during high-G manoeuvres and was developed together with the experts of the German Air Force Flight Physiological Training Centre in Koenigsbrueck.


Designed for easy operation

Training Device

The training device has a software controlled anti-G valve including PPB. Values of cut-in point, slopes and ratios can be selected via the GUI. Additionally, an audio communication system, video recording system, a pressurised air supply, a computer system and the safety system are installed.

Generic Cockpit

The generic cockpit includes a generic seat, a spring loaded centre stick and a throttle. The seat is vertically adjustable. The correct position of the seat is stored together with the student bio data.

Force Measurement

The rudder pedals including force measurement for each leg are horizontally adjustable and controlled by an electric drive via pre-programmed force versus time profiles. The pedals react on a displacement if the pilot is not able to balance these forces and to keep the pedals in the zero position.

Medical Monitoring and Sensor System

Medical measurement and recording system has 16 channels. Sensors for forces are installed in the rudder panel and on the centre stick. In addition, sensors for length measurement for the rudder and seat position, sensors for system pressure, as well as pressure in trousers, vest and mask. Force sensors for stick input in x- and y-direction.

Control Station

The control station consists of three sections:
The medical monitoring section
The recording and debriefing section and
The control section including Technical Subsystem Monitoring Unit – TSMU.


The control software controls the whole functionality of the simulator. The profile editor creates different force versus time profiles – simulated G-profiles. Storage and recall of these profiles for debriefing. Input of time intervals for the rhythm to exercise appropriate breathing and muscle straining technique. Monitoring of medical parameters.


AGSM – Myanmar 2014

The AGSM trainer was successfully installed and accepted by the Myanmar authorities in January 2014.

AGSM – Austria 2013

In 2013, AMST installed the device at their facility for demonstration and further development.

AGSM – Germany 2003

In 2002, AMST awarded the contract. Installation was in 2003 and the AGSM is still in operation. It is used for student pilots learning the AGSM techniques before going for HTC training.
