The trajectory followed by suborbital flight

offers a short time without gravity inside the

shuttle and passengers can enjoy this

incredible feeling.

To maximize this time, transitions between

strong accelerations phases and the

weightlessness must be the shortest as


Passengers must be able to fix and free from

the seats only in a few seconds, without

gravity, in a secure way. The passengers

absolutely need to be attached on their seats

during the strong accelerations phases to

avoid injuries.

Our project aims to minimize the transition time

thanks to a new system to fasten them on their


We propose an innovative and realistic suit

permanently worn by the passengers during

the journey. The suit will enable to be fixed

them on the seats so that they are maintained

during strong acceleration phases.

The concept is centralized around the

attaching system. At the back of the suit, a

prism enables to fasten the suit with the seat.

The prism and seat shapes are complementary

and allow an automatically alignment between

them. The passengers can simply have help

from the hoop.

The upper back part of the suit is composed of

a soft and damp layer close to the skin

passenger. A shell reinforced with rigid

stringers maintains this layer and allows

installing the prism. The front part is making up

of adjustable straps that can be adjusted with a

simple button.

Once the passengers fixed, the headrest goes

down to connect the pressurized air. A

pressure can consequently put around the legs

to allow the passenger to better resist to the

negative acceleration
