BIO 104: Advanced Egress and Post-Landing Space Suit Operations

BIO 104: Advanced Egress and Post-Landing Space Suit Operations

0 STUDENTS ENROLLED

    Objective:

    BIO 104 provides instruction on spacesuit use in nominal and off-nominal post-landing environments. Students demonstrate reliable functionality of parachute release, life preserver unit (LPU), and snorkel functionality in varying sea and lighting conditions. Students also learn the effective use of radios, beacons, signal flares, and other signaling devices in water and egress bottle use for egress operations.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Demonstrate stable floatation for various size test subjects
    2. Demonstrate reliable functionality of parachute release in varying sea conditions
    3. Demonstrate reliable functionality of snorkel system in varying sea conditions
    4. Demonstrate raft ingress in varying sea conditions
    5. Qualitative assessments of suit functionality and comfort with LPU
    6. Demonstrate effective use of radios, beacons, signal flares, and other signaling devices in water
    7. Demonstrate effective use of egress bottle for egress operations
