Study Aim:  Characterize the behavioral health and performance effects of a simulated Long Duration Exploration Mission (LDEM) in HERA on flight performance, workload, and situation awareness during representative spaceflight operational tasks.

A series of experiments will be conducted using the simulated spaceflight scenarios and real-time metrics engine to quantify performance, workload, and situation awareness in each task during the HERA mission. Analysis will be conducted for each scenario and meta-analysis across scenarios will be conducted to determine commonalities and to determine absolute performance thresholds. These metrics will also be correlated to data collected as part of the BHP Standardized Measures, including sleep/wake cycle, actigraphy, and a cognitive battery.

Deliverables include the analysis of data collected during these HERA missions, in the form of publishable research results, that can be directly used to address the HRR Risks and Gaps.
