Design and Ops Considerations for Human Space Flight Occupant Safety - FIT Task 353

This task involves a normative review and enhancement of the FAA’s Recommended Practices for Human Space Flight Occupant Safety document (Version 1.0, TC14-0037 dated August 27, 2014) from the collective perspectives of each research group spanning vehicle design and outfitting (CU), medical care and health concerns (BCM), and Human Centered Design (Florida Tech). Two top level aims encompassing general feedback on the Recommended Practices document followed by a systematic approach to provide considerations for design and operational solutions capable of addressing the needs stated in each subject area as a step toward identifying standards. The Florida Tech’s focus in this collaborative effort was on the Human-System Integration (HSI), interaction and human-system control inside the spacecraft cockpit and cabin. Utilizing Human-Centered Design (HCD) approach (prioritizing human safety, efficiency and comfort throughout the system design). This research effort builds on the previous research in areas of Human-Computer Interaction, Human Factors vehicle cockpit/cabin operations and related aspects of Mission Planning (Task 333 – Onboard Context-Sensitive Informational System).
