The controversial restriction of crew extravehicular activity to assembly and contingencies has focused the national spotlight on EVA, resulting in an extensive re-examination of the roles of crew and robotic EVA. This up-to-date publication presents a wide spectrum of leading-edge EVA technology, including component development, space station freedom (SSF) design for integration of EVA optimization of crew and robotic EVA, and much more. Sample contents include: telerobotics as an EVA tool; design considerations for future planetary space suits; development of a fuel cell for the EMU (extravehicular mobility unit); investigation into venting and non- venting technologies for the space station freedom extravehicular activity life support system; and requirements for extravehicular activities on the lunar and martian surfaces.
