    1. 1. HI-SEAS.ORG KIM BINSTED, BINSTED@HAWAII.EDU
    2. 2. Long duration, high latency missions – what does NASA need? •Astronaut or astronaut-like crew •High-fidelity mission profile and environment •Long-duration (4+ months) studies •Site that allows both crew isolation and easy access by researchers •High level of control of mission parameters (e.g.
    3. 3. HI-SEAS • Small, self-contained, low-impact, portable habitat • Accommodates six crewmembers in ~1000 sq ft • Laboratory and ‘robot garage’ • At disused quarry at ~8200’ on Mauna Loa side of Saddle Road • Visually isolated with very little visible plant/animal life • Many opportunities for relevant field work (e.g. geology, microbiology) in area
    4. 4. Habitat design
    5. 5. First crew • Selected from ~700 applicants, ~150 qualified, 30 interviewed • 1st selection strategy: “astronaut-like” to our best approximation • 2nd selection strategy: avoid obvious demographic isolation • • • • • International: 2 non-US Linguistically diverse: 3 fluent in English as a second language No fewer than 2 of any gender Military/non-military background (failed a bit here) Engineering/science balance
    6. 6. Next Phase: “Key contributors to the maintenance and regulation of team function and performance on long duration exploration missions” •AKA “How to keep crews sane” •$1.2M over three years from NASA •All about crew psychology and performance •Three missions (4, 8 and 12 months in length) over three years •Now seeking crew for all three missions.
    7. 7. Education and Public Outreach When not in use for analog missions, HI-SEAS will be available for education and public outreach. Potential activities include: • Visits by community groups • High-school robotics testing • Undergraduate research projects Seems to resonate with the public – lots of media coverage! Crews are explicitly tasked with EPO.
    8. 8. Benefits to HI • Bringing federal $$ to UH and into the economy • Providing opportunities for our students • Reminding the world that there is more to Hawaiʻ than i beaches and palm trees • Bringing international research here via opportunistic research projects • Testing and demonstrating sustainable technologies • Extending Hawaiʻ voyaging i’s tradition
