    The Habitability and Human Factors Branch is responsible for ensuring that space human factors, including human physical parameters and performance capabilities and limitations, are defined, documented, and applied to the design and operation of vehicles, habitats, and flight crew systems equipment to ensure the safety and productivity of humans in space. Crew station integration and crew interface analysis for flight crew systems are also performed by this group in support NASA's human space flight programs. This group establishes conceptual designs for habitats and crew systems; verifies human-machine interfaces and the operational habitability of spacecraft and habitats; and oversees and conducts research in space human factors to improve human performance and productivity.
