Abstract:

This report concerns the area of personal environment protection. Some requirements for intravehicular and extravehicular personal protective assemblies for various lunar and other space missions are defined and the problems and criteria of mobility, pressurization, heat and humidity control are discussed. Some developmental possibilities and some areas requiring biomedical research are indicated. The necessity for an Aerospace Environment Test and Research Facility is shown and a design proposal, particularly adapted to the specific requirements of bioastronautics, is discussed.
