Human Exploration Research Analog
A unique three-story habitat designed to serve as an analog for
isolation, confinement, and remote conditions in exploration scenarios.
Analog studies determine how isolation and confined habitation associated
with long duration missions impact the individuals and the team.
Studies suitable for this analog include behavioral health and performance
assessments, communication and autonomy studies, human factors evaluations,
and medical capabilities assessments.
✓ Ground-based analog studies can be completed faster than in flight
✓ Cost of research on earth is less than spaceflight research
