Short Title: Metabolic Evaluations on POGO, ARGOS
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

Obtain metabolic rate measurements of representative EVA tasks in different gravity environments with different EVA suits and EVA suit parameters. The following studies have been completed to address this task: Advanced EVA Walkback Test and Operational Pilot Study to Assess Human Performance Responses in Partial Gravity Environments; Constellation Program (CxP) EVA Systems SE&I FY'07 Test 1 - "Metabolic Costs and Biomechanics of a Planetary Suit"; Constellation Program (CxP) EVA Systems SE&I FY-07 Test 2 - "Metabolic Costs and Biomechanics of Exploration Tasks in a Planetary Suit"; Test and Evaluation of Liquid Cooling Garments.  Pending future exploration missions, additional studies may be required.

Integration/Unique Aspects: These studies are being coordinated and performed by a cross-center team that includes personnel from Constellation EVA Systems Project Office, and Life Sciences (ABF, EPSP, ECP, Neurosciences).
