Apply JSC's Human System Risk Management Approach to Commercial Suborbital and Short Duration Orbital Flights

The objectives of this project are to: (1) identify and select a subset of the 90 human system risks for the National Aeronautic Space Administration's (NASA's) long duration space flights that are applicable to suborbital and short duration orbital space flights; (2) assess and quantify the health and human performance risks for commercial space flight crew members and passengers; (3) apply the Wyle Integrated Medical Model (IMM) to assess risk and designing medical systems for the constrained environment of space flight; and (4) modify and apply these tools and processes to assess and mitigate human system risk feeds back into the future preparation of space flight participants, flight crews, ground operations, and vehicle design to further reduce risks to human health and performance.
