Training Systems Showcased for Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner Commercial Space Transport
Posted: 2016 Jan 08


Preparations towards the commencement of Boeing’s first-ever commercial spaceflights to International Space Station with its Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 spacecraft are gathering momentum. Boeing announced this week, that two of the four NASA astronauts undergoing training to fly the CST-100 Starliner spacecraft were introduced to training systems that will be used to prepare them for flights to the International Space Station. Astronauts Eric Boe and Bob Behnken trialled the systems that will help manipulate switches and display panels on the actual spacecraft.

“We have been learning about the spacecraft displays through slideshows. It’s great to finally see what we are actually going to train on,” Boe said. “The trainers look great, and this visit gives us an opportunity to meet with the Boeing engineers. We appreciate them allowing us to give input on these trainers so the devices are ready when they arrive at Johnson Space Center.” Up to seven passengers or a mix of crew and cargo will be transported by the CST-100 to the International Space Station (ISS) and the Bigelow planned station. The spacecraft is scheduled to undertake its maiden flight next year.

The first two complete trainers will be delivered to NASA in the autumn of 2016. Houston’s Johnson Space Center will also receive an immersive, high-fidelity training system from Boeing early next year.
