[Editor's Note September 2012: the following from the Human Research Roadmap http://humanresearchroadmap.nasa.gov/tasks/?i=893 ] The Injectables task successfully completed PDR (preliminary design review) in September of 2011. At that time, it was felt that the forward need for an injection device was too undefined to further proceed with the project. With uncertainty in the needs of the suit developers (Injectables was conceived under Constellation Program and was working under those mission scenarios), new and uncertain Design Reference Missions (DRMs), and uncertainty from the medical community on what needed to be provided because of the changing DRMs, the Injectables task was put on hold. The project is currently in an archived state that will allow for continued development if the need arises.More »
This technology development project aims to design a medical injection device for the harsh environment of space. This technology could translate to harsh Earth environments such as during underwater diving or during a hazardous materials/chemicals scenarios requiring the user to be in a containment suit.More »
