NASA SUITS Announcement -2019

Do you know a student in higher education that would like to gain authentic engineering design experience with user interfaces while also contributing to NASA missions? NASA’s Spacesuit User Interface Technologies for Students (SUITS) challenges student teams to design and create information displays that support the development of spacesuit capabilities. After development, student teams travel to the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas to test their prototypes at the Human Interfaces with Vehicles and Environments (HIVE) lab. The proposal deadline is October 31, 2018. 

2019 Challenge

Develop a user interface, utilizing the Microsoft HoloLens, which enables astronauts to finish a task more efficiently by providing a set of instructions via the display environment (audibly, visually, etc.). The task requires dexterity, physical activity, and navigation between various points within the test environment.
