Continued success in coping with the space environment has led to increased crewman confidence in his ability to perform useful work during extraterrestrial missions. Future missions will require advanced suitlife-support-system concepts. Such a concept might logically take the form of a space suit for extravehicular activity with an integrated environmental control system. A design study of this concept has been performed and drawings prepared in sufficient detail to permit fabrication of a working model in a suitably equipped model shop. Integration of the environmental control system within the hard torso of the suit assembly resulted in a system having a packaging density approaching 80 percent and able to pass through a 27 inch diameter hatch. The system will support a crewman working at 375 Kcalhour for an indefinite time to a recharge in space capability. Author
