Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Solicited
Aims:
1) Optimize power supply and compactness to ensure untethered movement within the
space station/Orion capsule during 6-8 hours’ continuous use of the Suit.

2) Increase safety by adding a second level of safety to turn off the vacuum pump.

3) Quantify range of motion, ground reaction forces, muscle activation, fluid shifts,

cardiovascular and cerebrovascular responses during simulated microgravity cross-over

trial with and without use of the Gravity Suit.

4) Temperature and humidity inside the suit (internal environment) and effect on

surroundings (external environment).
