Description

Initial state of Gap



Future spacecraft will primarily use glass cockpits, and systems may need to adapt to accommodate long-duration spaceflight conditions, and the resultant impacts to human performance. In addition, many operations are moving toward portable computing solutions that take advantage of multiple modalities (visual, auditory, tactile). Continuous monitoring for these types of new technology solutions is critical for providing mitigations for long-duration DRM operational challenges.

Interim steps for getting to the target (performed yearly)

  1. Monitoring of leading edge human-system interface technologies for applicability to next-generation HCI challenges.
  2. Down-select of technology for further consideration with emphasis on:
  • Systems that sense/learn/adapt (SRP)
  • Multi-modal solutions
  • Integration of technology and standards (SRP)
  • Evolvability of the technology
  • Degree of mitigation offered

Research Approach

  1. Stay abreast of latest technology offerings (new tech announcements, journals, conferences, blogs)
  2. Attend HCI-related conferences and DoD HFETAG meetings to see new technology vendors and presentations
  • Select promising candidates for further evaluation
  • Use existing facilities/analogs (e.g., iPAS, HERA) for assessments of new technologies
Target for Closure

Tech-Watch: Advanced, multi-modal and adaptive human-system interface technologies for next-generation missions.

Results may also lead to mitigations for HCI-06 and HCI-03
