Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
To determine how changes in suit pressure affect human performance and injury risk. The use of exploration atmosphere (8.2 psia / 34% O2), suitports and varied pressure EVA suits enables a new operating range for EVA suit pressure and the assumption that a lower pressure EVA suit is always better may not be the most effective way to operation.
