Aims:
Current methods and tools used in crew Earth-based pre-flight initial and refresher training are not likely to be appropriate for future Deep Space Gateway and Deep Space Transport (DST/DSG) missions. Training methods and tools for DST/DSG pre-flight training will need to ensure efficient and effective task and skill acquisition while also ensuring maximum retention and transfer needed for Earth-independent, autonomous space flight operations across a wide range of disciplines, including emergency response, medical operations, EVA, robotics, vehicle systems, and payloads training. Novel training methodologies such as personalized and adaptive training and new technologies such as augmented and virtual reality and gamification of training offer unique approaches to solutions for DST/DSG training practices, and appropriate training methods and tools must be identified and validated. Also, current requirements and standards for methods and tools used in crew training are not likely to be appropriate for future DST/DSG missions. Appropriate requirements and standards for training methods and tools must be identified.

Aims:
1. Identify and validate training methods and tools appropriate for pre-flight initial and refresher training needs for future missions, specifically focusing on areas unique to human space flight that are underrepresented in current training methods and tools, such as:
• Individualized, personalized training and adaptive training techniques,
• Immersive training in an operational context, and
• Augmented and virtual reality and gamification of training.

2. Identify requirements and standards for training methods and tools appropriate for pre-flight initial and refresher training needs for future missions.

These results will identify training methods and tools, as well as requirements and standards appropriate for pre-flight initial and refresher training needs for DSG/DST missions contributing to closing the gap, and thereby leading to a reduction in the risk.
