Short Title: Egress Fitness
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Quantify post-landing time course changes in unassisted capsule egress (1-g, unpressurized LEA suit) and planetary EVA task performance (pressurized planetary EVA spacesuit, simulated Mars or Lunar gravity) following 2 months, 6 months, and 1 year microgravity spaceflight durations using a standardized task battery.

Characterize the recovery to acceptable planetary EVA task performance as a function of EVA task type, time in space, time post-landing, and as a function of other potential determinants of performance (e.g. sleep, nutrition, exercise, sensorimotor performance).
