AATC Trainings

Dear Astronaut Hopeful,

Thank you very much for your interest in Analog Astronaut Training Center! We are searching not only for participants but also for collaborators and people who would like to work with us and collectively develop human spaceflight activities worldwide.

The next year will be mostly based on the continuation of started projects and collaborations. We will also finish the first stage of development of the advanced habitat and EVA simulation terrain. We are planning to bring our newly developed LEM surface exploration pressurized EVA suits and Platypus underwater EVA simulation suits. We are optimizing a new educational program for students: international scientific internships preparing to work in the space sector. We are expanding rocket workshops, dividing them into three stages: basic rocket workshop, advanced rocket workshop, and professional rocket workshop. We are developing new training courses for telemetry and telecommunication. Finally, we are opening a new holiday program of Space Camps for two groups of school kids: primary school kids and secondary school pupils. As always, we are open to new projects and collaborations. Do not hesitate to contact us.

Training Options

We have three main training options:

  • Habitat - 7-day analog mission in AATC Habitat simulating Lunar or Martian expedition

  • Diving - scuba diving training with professional certification without expiration date (you can choose the agency: PADI, NAUI, IANTD or all of them) at any level of proficiency from a diving introduction to hypoxic trimix technical diving
