Abstract : In the future, spacecraft will undergo structural changes (welding processes and partitioning or distribution of weight and equipment), and the crewmembers will perform more and more extravehicular activities; therefore, the medical control systems will also have to be changed accordingly. Radio communication channels and instruments will also have to conform with the different operational tasks. At present, short-range (on-board and near spacecraft) bio-telemetry systems present a relatively large number of problems. In fact, those involving important technical and experimental construction principles and some of the basic parameters have not been solved as yet. The report discusses the need for future theoretical and experimental research of radio waves propagation in solid, closed spaces and for the implementation of radio channels offering a highly reliable transmission of bio-telemetry data.
