NASA SUITS is looking for undergraduate and/or graduate student teams to submit a written proposal to design, build, and test an information display system within an augmented reality (AR) environment to assist astronauts in completing spacewalk tasks. The challenge is to demonstrate different modes of visual and audio communication in order to determine the best methods for displaying and communicating information to astronauts. The test week will take place May 21-25, 2018 at the NASA Johnson Space Center. Interested students should start by forming a team within their institution including at least one Faculty Sponsor and submitting a proposal at https://microgravityuniversity.jsc.nasa.gov/nasasuits.cfm
Hurry! Proposals are due Friday, December 15, 2017!
