Abstract:

A new technique for pressurization and thermal control in a space workers garment has been investigated. The goal was to design and fabricate complete coveralls and helmet that would consider the space environment and achieve physiological protection with exceptional reliability and a minimum of complementary systems. The coveralls utilizes mechanical counterpressure applied by an integument of closed cell material confined within a restraining garment. Thermal equilibrium is to be achieved by allowing natural physiological processes to control the evaporation of perspiration into the vacuum of space. Author
