Gap HSIA-301: We need to determine the on-board, intelligent systems that will support crew health and performance, and we need to establish the thresholds that will define how these systems should be implemented (including in-mission and at landing).

Description

As key indicators and outcomes are evaluated via validated measures (HSIA-101), and the HSIA risk continues to be characterized, specific countermeasure approaches will be refined as well (HSIA-201). While the approach for mitigating risk for HSIA further involves identifying specific human-system countermeasures for crew health and performance, the ranges of performance which warrant a specific countermeasure, will also need to be established. The intent of this gap is to define those specific thresholds which require mitigation, and how the mitigation needs to be implemented. 

Currently, HSIA does not have a complete, quantitative risk definition, including established critical thresholds or ranges, nor is there a description of the relative contribution of the contributing factors and how the human accommodation in the spaceflight environment compares to the human accommodation in terrestrial settings. 

Continued research in analogs with high fidelity to exploration mission scenarios (e.g. communication delays, small habitable volume) will help to inform meaningful performance thresholds. Spaceflight research assessing crew performance relative to spaceflight stressors (e.g. altered gravity) and systems, will further the development and validation of thresholds for spaceflight induced changes on performance, and critical time points at which specific countermeasures need to be implemented. 

Target for Closure
A complete, quantitative risk definition/standard model of HSIA performance (including NHV, vehicle layout and human computer interaction/designs), nor is there description of the relative contribution of the contributing factors and how spaceflight HSIA performance compares to terrestrial HSIA performance
  1. Validated thresholds for spaceflight induced changes on cognitive & behavioral performance;
  2. Guidelines for countermeasure implementation.
