Aims:

The specific aims of this study are to answer the following questions with regard to long duration, exploration missions:

(1) What are the key social and team technical (task) roles which influence team function;

(2) What are the behavioral and communicative markers which can be used to assess the degree to which key identified social and team technical roles are being fulfilled;

(3) What contextual aspects serve to trigger a need for the dynamic shift of social roles;

(4) What are the optimal combinations (i.e., profiles, algorithms) of social roles for the maintenance and regulation of team functions; and

(5) What are the markers that can be used to select for those most likely to fit social profiles and how do these profiles change across the duration of the mission (i.e., the team’s life cycle).

GapTeam Gap 1: We need to understand the key threats, indicators, and evolution of the team throughout its life cycle for autonomous, long duration and/or distance exploration missions.
GapTeam Gap 2: We need to identify a set of validated measures, based on the key indicators of team function, to effectively monitor and measure team health and performance fluctuations during autonomous, long duration and/or distance exploration missions.
GapTeam Gap 3: We need to identify a set of countermeasures to support team function for all phases of autonomous, long duration and/or distance exploration missions.
GapTeam Gap 5: We need to identify validated ground-based training methods that can be both preparatory and continuing to maintain team function in autonomous, long duration, and/or distance exploration missions.
GapTeam Gap 8: We need to identify psychological and psychosocial factors, measures, and combinations thereof that can be used to compose highly effective crews for autonomous, long duration and/or distance exploration missions.
