The objectives of this continuation proposal are to provide risk assessment and countermeasure evaluation of the following fundamental behavioral interaction operations that will most likely affect crew performance effectiveness and psychosocial adaptation:
  1. The structure and function of communication channels within and between simulated space-dwelling and Earth-based groups;
  2. Factors associated with variations in the behavioral management systems between space-dwelling and Earth- based groups;
  3. Factors associated with variations in workloads, stressful time pressure, and conflict conditions
  4. Behavioral and psychosocial interaction systems between spaceflight crews and Earth-centered mission support operations that are most likely to influence individual and group performance during long-duration missions.
