Investigation of EVA Information Interface Technology in a Mars Analog Arctic Field Science Setting 2002-01-2312

Hamilton Sundstrand Space Systems International (HSSSI) participated with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute and Simon Fraser University in the 2001 field season of NASA's Haughton-Mars Project (HMP) to study information technologies concepts and hardware systems for advanced Extravehicular Activity (EVA). The research was focused on developing an improved understanding of the uses of the interface in an exploration / field science context. Interface integration with communication, navigation and scientific data systems, and the special challenges posed by the expeditionary environment were investigated.
This paper presents a discussion of the field test systems, test activities and results. Recommendations for future, higher fidelity research are included.
