Modular Portable Life Support System (PLSS) to Increase EVA Mobility and Reduce Consumables

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Modular Portable Life Support System (PLSS) to Increase EVA Mobility and Reduce Consumables
This proposal seeks to analyze the requirements for a modular portable life support system (PLSS) for a highly mobile, lightweight suit, and quantify mobility and bioenergetics as a function of subsystem placement for both gas-pressurized suits and advanced suit concepts. This will inform suit/PLSS design of both current (Z-series) and next-generation suits. More »
