Focused on different Environmental Control and Life Support Systems (ECLSS)
A key field for vertical and greenhouse factories for Space.
The program V-MARS has the main goal of providing a practical testbed for field operation studies to prepare human-crewed missions to Mars through VR/AR Technology. The program foresees an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) simulation of the MARS CITY Station (V-MARS). The significant advantage is undertaking training sessions. The crew can interact with its future environment. This activity's main objective is the achievement of adequate fidelity simulations and a data validation obtained during the training. The program includes the development of VR treadmills (MOTIGRAVITY, MOTIVITY, BABY-MOTIVITY), which are currentely distributed under the trademark Mars Virtual Systems: www.marsvrsys.com
Energy and Isru
It aims to achieve adequate power generation and storage in Mars replicated conditions. It must demonstrate sustained and robust performances at least over the reference surface mission's lifespan (18 months). The output is to assess long term performances of In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) technologies, including Sabatier reactors
Telemedicine potentially plays a crucial role in improving health services. Space medicine is focused on interactions with communication technologies and healthcare protocols for crewed missions with enormous earth life benefits, with a substantial potential spillover on Earth.
The research aims to define crew safety, crew health, crew productivity, Figures of Merit (FoM), and human factors standard requirements and specifications. It reviews habitat design, construction, and testing to assess compliance with these performance-based standards.
