Abstract:
This paper discusses the general problems facing a human operator in space with particular emphasis on mobility. An analysis of motions using a simple systems concept leads into a discussion of operational aspects and determination of propellant requirements and results in a preliminary design specification of a mobility system. Finally, a first attempt at a preliminary design of a system is presented.From this effort, it can be concluded that a simple, free space mobility system can be provided at low weight penalties, thus making it suitable for early experiments, possibly on “Gemini.”
