  46. EVAS – EVA Suit • Critical functional elements: pressure shell, atmospheric and thermal control, communications, monitor and display, nourishment, and hygiene • Current suit is much too heavy and cumbersome to explore the Martian environment • ILC Dover is currently developing the I-Suit which is lighter, packable into a smaller volume, and has better mobility and dexterity

  47. EVAS – EVA Suit • I-Suit specs: • Soft upper-torso • 3.7 lbs/in2 (suit pressure can be varied) • Easier to tailor to each individual astronaut • ~65 lbs • Bearings at important rotational points • Greater visibility • Boots with tread for walking on Martian terrain • Parts are easily interchangeable (decrease number of spare parts needed)

  48. EVAS - Airlock • Independent element capable of being ‘plugged’ or relocated as mission requires • Airlock sized for three crew members with facilities for EVA suit maintenance and consumables servicing • There will be two airlocks each containing three EVA suits • Airlock will be a solid shell (opposed to inflatable) • The airlock will interface with the habitat through both an umbilical system and the hatch

  49. EVAS – Umbilical System • Connections from the habitat to the airlock and rover will be identical • Inputs from habitat to airlock/rover (through umbilical system) • Water (potable and non-potable) • Oxygen/Nitrogen • Data • Power • Outputs from airlock/rover to habitat (through umbilical system) • Waste water • Air • Data

  50.
