Short Title: Advanced Permeable Membrane Study
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Terminated - A formerly active task that was stopped before its completion date due to deselection, descoping, reorganization etc.
Procurement Mechanism(s):

This task will evaluate the ability of an advanced material, called the dense monolithic membrane, to facilitate cooling in the suit by enhancing the removal of moisture (i.e., sweat evaporation) adjacent to the crewmember’s skin.  This mechanism would also provide a means to avoid overcooling.

Integration/Unique Aspects: Tests of the torso garment prototype will be performed by EPSP and Environmental Physiology Laboratory personnel, and possibly with ECP as add-on to integrated suited tests.
