OPS 102: Spacecraft Egress and Rescue Operations

$3,000.00

BIO 102 is the first professional education course on the landing and post-landing phase of manned spacecraft missions. this course covers nominal and contingency landing scenarios, post-landing planning, rescue and recovery architecture design, egress systems and operational procedures, deconditioning and post-landing survivability, generalized egress skills, and emergency egress bottle use.


Description

Summary:

Offered by Integrated Spaceflight Services exclusively in partnership with Survival Systems USA,  ‘Spacecraft Egress, Sea Survival, and Rescue Operations’ is the first professional education course on the landing and post-landing phase of manned spacecraft missions. This background is essential when considering spacesuit design criteria.

Curriculum:
