Aims:
This task is in response to an urgent need to develop and validate a Space Flight Habitability and Acceptability Questionnaire (SHAQ) to assess the behavioral health and performance impacts of volume, layout, and other design features of vehicles and habitats for long-duration exploration spaceflight and other operational environments.

Aim 1: Conduct a review to identify primary constructs and themes relevant to habitability effects on individual and team behavioral health and performance in operational environments.
Aim 2: Develop candidate questionnaire items based on the constructs and themes identified in the literature review and validated against coded videos from the ISS Habitability Study (PI: Greene) and in consultation with Subject Matter Experts.
Aim 3: Empirically assess the initial sensitivity, construct validity, divergent validity, and concurrent validity of SHAQ in HERA C5.
Aim 4: Refine SHAQ based on the results of the HERA validation study.
Aim 5: Draft a NASA Technical Report and/or manuscript for publication that (a) provides the results of SHAQ research and development efforts and (b) offers habitability recommendations for future deep space exploration missions.
Aim 6: Author a SHAQ User Guide for public dissemination providing details on administration, scoring, and data management and interpretation.
