Short Title: Contingency Food – 2
Responsible HRP Element: Space Human Factors and Habitability
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. To develop food product parameters to meet nutritional, acceptability, stability, and suit interface criteria.
  2. To test several concepts for dispensing liquid through a feed port into a pressurized suit.

The in-suit nutritional delivery system prototype successfully delivered water to a test subject in a launch and landing suit pressurized to 4 psi. Prior to these tests, there was no method to provide nutrition to a crewmember in a pressurized suit. Further development of this prototype will enable both nutrition and some medications to be delivered to crew in a contingency cabin depressurization scenario.
