Task Using Analog Missions to Develop Effective Team Composition Strategies for Long Duration Space Exploration
Last Published:  07/31/19 10:05:33 AM (Central)
Short Title: Team Composition
Responsible HRP Element: Human Factors and Behavioral Performance
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):

Aim 1: Collect, develop, and verify a set of individual, dyad and crew characteristics that are expected (based on past investigations) to be relevant to crew composition.

Aim 2: Identify correlations, if any, between those characteristics and crew function/performance, using data from a series of simulated missions of various lengths at analog sites.

Aim 3:  Data mining of all HI-SEAS data (Missions I-V) related to team, composition, including investigation of individual personalities, cognitive function and behavioral health changes, as it influences team performance and functioning in fulfillment of the aims of the Team Composition grant

Aim 4:  Develop a database of all HI-SEAS data funded by NASA (including HI-SEAS opportunistic research collaborators).

Aim 5:  Develop a set of tools (e.g. rubric, implemented model, best practices) NASA can use to optimize crew composition.
