Last Published:  07/27/17 09:48:12 AM (Central)
Short Title: Suit Pressure Study
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Engineering Crew & Thermal Systems/NASA JSC
Funding Status: Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
Procurement Mechanism(s):
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.
