Abstract:

A Compact Feeding Console was designed to meet the sustenance requirements of three men for an extreme altitude mission of 14 days duration. A comprehensive study of the human and environmental conditions revealed that the astronauts would need equipment, d vices, and facilities for storage, preparation--cooling or heating--of canned, frozen, dehydrated, and ready foods a water storage, cooling and heating system a wet and dry waste treatment and storage system and feeding tools. The equipment and systems were tested to evaluate expected performance under operating conditions from normal gravity and 1 atmosphere pressure to weightlessness also called zero gravi y in this report and 12 atmosphere pressure, and acceleration forces from 2 to 8 gs, to insure both independent operation of the component sections and integrated operation of the total Console in compliance with predetermined optimal performance standards.
