: Space, rescue, psychology, physiology, designAbstract:
The design and development of crew emergency response systems, particularly to provide an unplanned emergency return to earth capability, requires an understanding of crew performance changes in space. The combined effects of psychological and physiological adaptation during long-duration missions will have a significant effect on crew performance in the unpredictable and potentially life threatening conditions of an emergency return to earth. It is therefore important that the systems to be developed for emergency egress address these challenges through an integrated program to produce optimum productivity and safety in times of utmost stress.
