Short Title: HFBP Exploration Measures in HERA for Mars
Responsible HRP Element: Human Factors and Behavioral Performance
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:
This will allow HRP to establish, evaluate, and manage a common set of measures for use in spaceflight and analog research to: develop baselines, systematically characterize risk likelihood and consequences, and assess effectiveness of countermeasures that work for human factors and behavioral performance risk factors. This task will provide “standard measures” as the foundation to achieve consistent research measures for data-sharing in HERA and to meet the highly constrained, operationally-focused data gathering and analysis that allows for greater consistency in the research methods that are very specific to NASA HRP standard measures development. Additionally, the set of HFBP standardized measures in the HERA analog reflects the more operational nature of the measures while allowing the multiple and frequent internal and external collaborations required to execute this study.

This study aims to:
1. Provide a set of HFBP standard measurements for investigators to use in proposed projects.
2. Enable comparison of multiple missions across spaceflight analog campaigns to quantify risk using reliable metric-based data.
3. Provide database for data-mining and integrative modeling and increase research data quality and transfer to LSDA.

This task will contribute to gap closure by facilitating tasks using the HERA analog in the BMed, Sleep, and Team risk areas and by testing measures and monitoring tools for Surface Operations.
Mappings
RiskRisk of Adverse Cognitive or Behavioral Conditions and Psychiatric Disorders
GapBMed-101: We need to identify, quantify, and validate the key selection factors for astronaut cognitive and behavioral strengths (e.g., resiliency) and operationally-relevant performance threats for increasingly Earth independent, long-duration, autonomous, and/or long-distance exploration missions.
GapBMed-102: Given exposures to spaceflight hazards (space radiation, isolation), how do we identify individual susceptibility, monitor molecular/biomarkers and acceptable thresholds, and validate behavioral health and CNS/neurological/neuropsychological performance measures and domains of relevance to exploration class missions?
GapBMed-104: Given the potentially negative spaceflight associated CNS changes and behavioral experiences of stressors during long-duration missions (e.g., isolation, confinement, reduced sensory stimulation, altered gravity, space radiation), what are validated modifications to habitat/vehicle to mitigate stressors impacting on CNS / cognition / behavioral health?
GapBMed-105: Given the potentially negative spaceflight associated CNS/cognitive changes and behavioral experiences of stressors during long-duration missions (e.g., isolation, confinement, reduced sensory stimulation, altered gravity, space radiation), what are validated medical or dietary countermeasures to mitigate stressors impacting on CNS / cognition / behavioral health?
GapBMed-108: Given each crewmember will experience multiple spaceflight hazards simultaneously, we need to identify and characterize the potential additive, antagonistic, or synergistic impacts of multiple stressors (e.g., space radiation, altered gravity, isolation, altered immune, altered sleep) on crew health and/or CNS/ cognitive functioning to develop threshold limits and validate countermeasures for any identified adverse crew health and/or operationally-relevant performance outcomes.
