  1. 1.  Frank – Introduction, maintenance and repair, assessment plan Carolyn – Synopsis, medical, academic integration Eric – Significance, resources Tyler – Budget Sam – Design requirements, general design, tools, galley, wardroom, education outreach & diversity
  2. 2.  Create A multifunctional workstation that can be transformed to any of the following functions within a 5 minute time limit:  Galley  Wardroom  Medical Operations  Maintenance and Repair Design an ERAU centered program to prepare, design, and test prototype(s) for submission to NASA
  3. 3.  Give ERAU students experience Orient students to the process of submitting proposals Create a unique school program to meet the X-Hab Challenges Interface with local businesses and schools for support and education Put our designs in space to support exploration.
  4. 4.  4 Crewmembers for 14-30 days All functions are equally important Convert within a 5 minute limit Convert functions using 1 Crewmember Prototypes must be:  Flame retardant  Lightweight  Durable
  5. 5.  Human centered design Focused on common  Grouping of Functions elements:  Response Expectancy  Compatibility Table  Discrete controls where appropriate  Built-in suction system  Configurable displays, regardless of selected function  Modules support a function Display Entertainment connections Galley service
  6. 6.  Rapid transformation between functions  Extend/Retract  Rotate or swivel  Slide horizontally or vertically
  7. 7.  Initial ideas and designs focused on modularity and flexibility Allows for easy reconfiguration during testing to meet HF design principles Match design ideas to mission requirements Model / prototype basic designs Design, Test, Re-design.
  8. 8.  CATIA  Technical Engineering software Google SketchUp  Quick, easy 3D modeling  Large library of components  Free Space Movement Simulators  May allow design testing with a simulated human in a microgravity environment
  9. 9.  Initially, large components will have multiple possible locations Tabletop suction provides stability and cleanliness of environment  Additional suction always accessible Water system always accessible 7 day storage of food within compartment Multiple table designs will allow for testing flexibility Oven, refrigerator, water, and vacuum module(s) extend on tracks for easy maintenance access
  10. 10.  Medical supplies and equipment contained in a retractable drawer or easily accessible module Table suction, magnetic strips, and restraints built-in Additional light, suction, and tool holders easily fold out from drawer or extend from medical system module Diagnostic equipment easily accessible  Primary and secondary displays allow for diagnostic data & alternate video/diagram display  Medical teleconference / Remote surgery One-Touch emergency button positions medical equipment
  11. 11.  Table for other functions will be used as a maintenance work area Standard space tool-kit will be equipped in crew station Tools will be located in accessible areas close to table for easy to reach use amongst crewmembers
  12. 12.  Individual storage units for entertainment/ media Equipment and interfaces providing flexibility and multiple functions  i.e. video teleconferencing, medical consultations, and other entertainment or emergency functions Entertainment system (display/ audio) will include a network file access  i.e. music, video, documents, and pictures Vehicle status will be displayed while entertainment system is inactive
