To obtain data aimed at development of aids and methods to sustain reliability of implementing complex and critical dynamic modes of spacecraft manual control by cosmonauts at different phases of a long-duration flight, as well as study of special features of cosmonauts' psychophysiologic response to the effects of stress factors in flight.
Information PendingEarth Applications
Equipment for robotic systems simulation and control analysis for simultaneous assessment of the quality of cosmonaut's professional activity at different phases of a long-duration flight and psychophysiologic "value" of his activity, Laptop computer and interchangeable hard disk drive.Operational Protocols
Crew activity analysis when implementing simulated modes of control by robotic systems. Assessment of workstation accommodation and arrangement, restraining aids for operators and equipment at the workstation.
This experiment will help develop the procedure to evaluate and forecast stability in implementing complex modes of manual control by cosmonauts at different phases of a long-duration space flight. It will also reduce the risk of inaccurate actions when implementing complex and critical modes of spacecraft manual control, increasing the flight safety. Scientists and engineers can also use the data when conducting crew training to maintain professional skills by using onboard simulator during the flight.
