Abstract : Successful completion of a design study of an extravehicular space suit assembly with an integrated life support system has led to the fabrication and evaluation of a human factors mockup. This mockup consists of a two-piece hard torso with soft arms and legs. A full bubble helmet and pressure gloves complete the pressure suit system. The hard torso is a volumetric representation of an integral life support system. It also contains an operational cold-gas propulsion system and controls and display panel. Sixteen thrusters provide accelerations of 0.3 ft/sec squared in three degrees of translation and 10 to 20 degrees of rotation. (Author)
