Abstract:

A compact feeding console designed for storing, preparing, and dispensing food items in a space vehicle was evaluated during a simulated 3-man, 14-day space flight. The engineering design of the console and accessories were evaluated and the acceptability and nutritional value of the food recommended for use in the console were measured. Further research must be conducted to improve the designs incorporated in the console. Design should be compatible with the diet and type of processed food to be furnished the crew members.
