Cognitive Task Analysis and Knowledge Elicitation to Inform Medical Workstation Requirements for Long Duration Space Missions

手机体育投注平台The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is conducting an investigation into the design of a medical workstation for an upcoming mission to Mars and other long duration crewed spaceflight missions. To help ensure the safety and well-being of astronauts on long duration exploration missions, this medical workstation represents a crucial capability for the overall success of future interplanetary missions. This research may benefit from another analogous NASA effort where researchers are currently generating requirements for a predictive space radiation risk model that will be used to plan crewed spaceflight missions beyond Low Earth Orbit (LEO). This activity includes a series of knowledge elicitation activities and the completion of a Cognitive Task Analysis (CTA) to inform the generation of design requirements. This paper is focused on how these methods and techniques can be adapted to the design of a medical workstation for the mission to Mars.
