Short Title: Sensorimotor Fitness for Duty Assessment
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
1) Develop a Sensorimotor Adaptation Analog (SAA)
  • Perform gold standard measures at 3 different magnitudes of SAA (zero, low, high). If the 3 levels are distinct and cover the range of observed postflight performance, we will keep those levels. If not, we will continue to increase SAA magnitude until those values are replicated.
  • Test the Exploration Field Measures at the 3 titrated levels of SAA, if performance varies as a function of SAA magnitude, the measures are successful.
2) Determine fitness for duty standards by comparing performance by determining a threshold where poor performance in Exploration Field Measures corresponds to unacceptable performance in operational tasks.
3) Validate and calibrate the standards to lunar G by performing a subset of EVA-focused Exploration Field Measures and operational tasks in the Active Response Gravity Offload System (ARGOS) at lunar G and after prolonged +3Gx centrifugation.
