The Human Research Program (HRP) investigates and mitigates the highest risks to astronaut health and performance in exploration missions. The goal of the HRP is to provide human health and performance countermeasures, knowledge, technologies, and tools to enable safe, reliable, and productive human space exploration, and to ensure safe and productive human spaceflight. The scope of these goals includes both the successful completion of exploration missions and the preservation of astronaut health over the life of the astronaut.

To support formulation of the NASA Research Announcement titled “Research and Technology Development to Support Crew Health and Performance in Space Exploration Missions” scheduled to be released in August 2011, the HRP will be seeking feedback regarding the following topics: Human Interaction with Automation and Robotics; Team Social, Technical, and Task Roles; Effects of Constrained, Asynchronous Communication on Operational Tasks. A Request for Information (RFI) concerning these topics will be released on the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review System (NSPIRES) on June 17, 2011. The RFI will be open to responses from all parties including commercial entities, international organizations, academia, NASA Centers, and other government agencies for two weeks.

The Government does not intend to award an award on the basis of this RFI, or to otherwise pay for the information solicited.
