NASA photos below show the use of similar gauges in the Shuttle Mission Simulator (SMS). First, astronauts John Young and Bob Crippen train for the first Space Shuttle mission, STS-1. Second, astronaut Crippen uses the simulator gauges. Third, astronauts Brian Duffy and Winston Scott discuss procedures in the simulator in preparation for their flight in 1995.

To the left in the instrument group is the AMI, to the right is the AVVI, at center top is the ADI, and at center bottom is the HSI.
