PC Based Extravehicular Mobility Unit Malfunction Simulator 1999-01-2035

Based on the high volume of Extravehicular Activity (EVA) needed for assembly and operation of the International Space Station (1792 hrs through GFY2005), a large number of new crewmembers will be trained in the use of the Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU). In addition, the crewmembers will require on-orbit refresher training in the use of an EMU given their extended duration on-orbit of 90-180 days. Currently, there is a single hardware based training unit at Johnson Spaceflight Center (JSC) (the MALF II Simulator). This paper reports on the development of a software based training simulator (EMU Malfunction Training Simulator [EMTS]) which will run on any PC under Microsoft Windows and will be used to supplement MALF II.
