The Constellation Program must develop a space suit system that will meet the new requirements for crew survival functions, microgravity intravehicular and extravehicular activities, and lunar surface exploration. This paper summarizes recent work on the NASA Constellation Space Suit Element Pressure Garment and Crew Survival Subsystem (PG/CS). The PG/CS team has emphasized the areas of feasibility studies toward PG/CS architecture definition and risk mitigation. Representative examples of these efforts are discussed below. Forward work is also presented.
