Two projects were performed. The first was to design and build a full-sized mock-up of seat three in the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV). This project was to determine if the purposed length of the OCSS umbilical bundles (OUB) were adequate for use and if the placement of the umbilical restraint devices (URD) were correctly placed to bend radii measurements. The results determined that the length of the OUB could be shortened and also that the some URD placements did not fulfil the requirements.
The second project was to test the performance of the gas trap in the liquid cooling garment (LCG) system. There is concern that the gas traps will fail due to inorganic materials clogging the sublimator. It is theorized that the plastic tubing used inside the LCG will leech out inorganic materials. The tests are still on going and results will follow at the end of the internship.
