Extravehicular Activity (EVA) based from the Space Station Freedom presents unique conditions in which a space suit must operate. To accommodate the predicted demands, new technology is required in many aspects of the suit design. The requirements associated with Space Station EVA are addressed and an overview of various technology concepts is given. Two candidate space suits are presented and the methods used to evaluate their performance characteristics are described.
