ENGINEERING COMPANIES INVOLVED
The original simulator design for the museum was a completely pnuematic system which a Sydney based company, Latitudes did the design work for. This pnuematic system was a failure in that it did not generate enough movement quickly enough throughout the platform. Consulting engineers Gardener Willis and Associates then modified the design of a pnuematic system to run almost exclusively by hydraulic actuation. Tysci Industries became involved in completing the work in implementing the hydraulics for the simulator.The original simulator was completed in 1991.
