Iva and Eva Work Place Design for a Man-Tended System 901415
This paper considers global and detailed design responses to the particular problems of a non-space adapted crew. It discusses crew disorientation problems and the space adaptation syndrome as they relate to certain design features of a prospective, man-tended vehicle. Both, IVA and EVA scenarios and related design characteristics are addressed along with architectural and functional needs and implementation potentials.
The paper notes some associated technological details such as, e.g. the need for matching the design of modern electronic units with the dimensional capabilities of module racks, or the use of a particular type of connectors to enhance EVA.
An EVA and repair philosophy in response to crew capabilities and problems is also proposed.
