NASA – Crash and escape training
NASA uses EZ Dock in a pool environment for simulated helicopter crash escape procedures as well as NASA Space Capsule splash down recovery. The blue helicopter cabin is placed in the pool bottom up and occupants are asked to escape in a simulated helicopter crash over water similar to circumstances encountered when commuting to off shore oil rigs.
The Space Capsule has a similar application since upon entering the water specific parts of the capsule are ejected automatically allowing occupants to exit. The tarp suspended from the EZ Dock installation allow easier collection of the parts that are ejected in the simulation exercises.
