Spacesuit Sensing Data Display and Management System, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Spacesuit Sensing Data Display and Management System, Phase I
ZIN Technologies, Inc will breadboard an integrated electronic system for space suit application to acquire images, biomedical sensor signals and suit health & status data. The system will then process, display, store, transmit and manage the results under control of embedded firmware. A commercial off-the-shelf heads-up display which is applicable to space suit helmets will be the primary display device. The system will include a breadboard version of a lightweight, low power, general purpose computing platform based on commercial-grade components with available, upgraded versions that can tolerate the EVA thermal/vacuum/radiation environment. Initial development of a camera interface will be included. A breadboard of the proposed system will be built, programmed and demonstrated. ZIN will leverage our past experience in NASA spaceflight hardware/software development and existing biomedical monitoring technology to deliver a mature concept demonstration at minimal cost and risk. The system will be compatible with medical industry standard sensors to measure CO2, core temperature and other biomedical parameters. The proposed Phase 1 effort will be geared toward future development of a Phase 2 version that could be integrated into a functional EVA system. More »
