We are extremely happy to count with Integrated Spaceflight's market experience in providing services for customers requiring a hands-on approach to the FAA certification and payload integration process for parabolic flights, which can be very complex.
Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) March 17, 2015
Integrated Spaceflight Services, a Colorado-based aerospace company specializing in payload test and integration, spaceflight research services and space education and training services, announced today that it has been selected to be the Research and Education Integration Partner of Swiss Space Systems (‘S3’) for its reduced gravity program in the Americas.
“Integrated Spaceflight is proud to have been chosen by S3 to serve the research and education community for its integration needs in North America,” said Dr. Jason Reimuller, president of Integrated Spaceflight Services. “We are very excited to work together with S3 to fly our customer’s payloads on the world’s largest zero-gravity aircraft.”
Integrated Spaceflight will provide a seamless interface for the microgravity researcher or educator, managing the FAA certification process of their payloads to be flown on S3’s zero g aircraft. S3 will operate a wide-body Airbus, specially modified for zero g operations, which will provide parabolic flight services in the United States starting in the Fall of 2015.
Integrated Spaceflight will also provide aerospace medical assistance for in-flight experimenters as well as an Internal Review Board (IRB) for experiments involving human test subjects.
"We are extremely happy to count with Integrated Spaceflight's market experience in providing services for customers requiring a hands-on approach to the FAA certification and payload integration process for parabolic flights, which can be very complex indeed," said Robert Feierbach, Head of S3 USA.
