Man-Machine Aspects Four-Man Space Cabin Simulator 650813
This paper recapitulates the major design, development, and management of a program for the engineering development of integrated spacecraft environmental control and life support systems and for the solution of man-machine integration problems. The different phases of the program are applicable to a family of manned space laboratories and manned interplanetary space vehicles. Simulation techniques included the use of space-laboratory types of life support subsystems hardware of flight type, but not necessarily of flight weight. Most of the preliminary results of the first phase of this program and future phases are discussed in this paper, and future phases are reviewed.
