Medical Data System High Level View for Deep Space Gateway 2018-01-1914
NASA is developing and leading the research for missions into deep space near the moon to begin testing medical systems needed for challenging missions into deep space destinations including Mars. These missions enabling exploration of distant destinations are defined as Deep Space Gateway. Testing and experimentation of advanced new technologies to support human missions to explore deep space is a fundamental development requirement to open opportunities to support science exploration missions. NASA’s “Exploration Medical Capabilities (ExMC) Element develops medical technologies for in-flight diagnosis and treatment as well as data systems to protect patients’ private medical data, aid in the diagnosis of medical conditions, and act as repositories of information about relevant NASA life science experiments.” The Medical Data System High Level View for Deep Space Gateway presents a high level view of the data system framework and architecture to support and enhance the medical capabilities for space exploration with the ability to address the challenges and requirements of space exploration.
