Status: Open
Description
Initial State:



Currently we do not know the acceptable threshold or ranges for habitable volume and the preferred internal layout for a vehicle/habitat for a given set of mission attributes. Long-duration missions will have increased crew autonomy and with no resupply. There are a number of guidelines and measurement techniques for designing and assessing vehicles/habitats that need to be developed and validated for predetermined mission attributes.



Interim Steps:


  • Review and integrate products developed as part of HAB-04, findings from applicable Gaps (e.g., HAB-01, HAB-02, HAB-05), and findings from applicable in-flight data collection for potential inputs to guidelines for acceptable NHV and vehicle/habitat layout design configurations.
  • Query other HRP Elements and outside entities for relevant research results that should be integrated into guidelines for acceptable NHV and vehicle/habitat layout design configurations.
  • Develop a mitigation plan based on findings about tool and metrics (HAB-05), ranges and thresholds for humans and environment (HAB-01, 02), in-flight data collection, and relevant research performed by other HRP Elements.
  • Validate mitigation plan through testing in relevant analog (e.g., HERA) or ISS.
  • Vet mitigation plan with the Habitability Working Group formed as part of HAB-04.
  • Finalize/Deliver the mitigation plan including the delivery of guidelines, ground rules, and processes to appropriate stakeholders/programs (e.g., OCHMO, AES, Orion) to ensure acceptable NHV and vehicle/habitat layout design.
Approach:

  • Develop guidelines based on results and recommendations from applicable gaps, in-flight data collection and analysis, and relevant research performed by other HRP Elements.
  • Use tools and metrics developed through HAB-05 to validate guidelines prior to vetting and delivering.
  • Obtain approval from the appropriate, pre-determined program and/or institutional boards.
Target for Closure
Finalize/Deliver the mitigation plan including the delivery of guidelines, ground rules, and processes to appropriate stakeholders/programs (e.g., OCHMO, AES, Orion) to ensure acceptable NHV and vehicle/habitat layout design.
