Task SM Standards to OCHMO
Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: SM Standards OCHMO
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
Procurement Mechanism(s):

The maturation task will:

(1) recommend sensorimotor standards for in-mission assessments and procedural controls relevant to manual control, crew egress and EVAs during planned Mars DRMs;  
(2) recommend sensorimotor standards for preflight training and post-flight reconditioning; and 
(3) present the findings at boards to transition to appropriate operations stakeholders, as required.

Detailed Information
This maturation task will leverage results from the Sensorimotor Standards (POL) Validation Study on ISS. This will extend the prior maturation task establishing SM standards for lunar design reference missions (DRMs) and include SM standards focused on Mars DRMs. The fitness-for-duty sensorimotor standards will be established for operational tasks, categorized as manual control, crew egress and EVA. Manual control standards will leverage recommendations for proficiency with just-in-time trainers during extended missions, limitations of dual tasking during critical phases and eye-hand coordination assessments. Crew egress and EVA fitness for duty assessments will include motion sickness, head-body motion monitoring, and field assessments of mobility and balance. Recommendations for standards for pre-flight training and post-flight reconditioning to return to baseline performance level will also be included.
