NASA/JSC Training Facility
NASA's underwater training facility at the Johnson Space Center (JSC) Neutral Buoyancy Lab (NBL) in Houston, Texas is the most advanced in the world. The 6.2 million gallon, 40-foot deep pool was originally designed to support space-walk planning, testing and training, with full-scale mock-ups of the International Space Station. While the facility continues to support NASA's space program, designated areas have been assigned to meet the needs of Bastion's Survival Training Program and allows for realistic simulation of all our water-based training activites.
Lifeboat Training Facility
Includes TEMPSC lifeboat, muster platform and plunge pool to realistically simulate emergency muster and facility abandonment procedures.
Fire Ground with Smoke House Facility
Includes facilities for fire extinguisher and hose reel training on a range of classes of fire, large and medium bore hoses and branches plus an extensive smokehouse for Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and self-rescue training.
