Crew Work Station Update for Space Station Alpha 941324
Redesign of the Space Station to the Alpha configuration has led to significant changes in the crew work stations. The Multi-Purpose Applications Console, which was the primary crew interface with the Data Management System, has been deleted and replaced with a laptop computer.
The proposed design process for these new work stations includes analysis and definition of the crew functions, the display and control requirements and the conceptual layouts of candidate work stations. Following crew acceptance of static mockups, detailed functional simulations must be conducted for crew evaluation of the proposed configurations, particularly for the Robotics Control Work Stations.
