Wearable Augmented Reality for Space Suits

NASA SUITS (Spacesuit User Interface Technologies for Students) challenges students to design and create spacesuit information displays within augmented reality (AR) environments.


NASA’s Artemis missions aim to land American astronauts on the Moon for the first time since the Apollo missions, but the ambition to explore doesn’t end there. Through Artemis, we hope to set a presence on the moon that will act as a gateway to further human space travel — and eventually reach Mars. These goals however, come with unprecedented challenges . Namely the 20 minute information delay between Earth and Mars. We aim to solve these challenges through the NASA SUITS 2023 challenge.

Mission Goals

  • The creation and development of a dual monitor LMCC (Localized Mission Control Center) to give Mars crew-members more autonomy during missions. The ability to control a rover through the LMCC. The creation of an Augmented Reality User Interface to help crew-members adjust Suit’s settings and view vital biometric, navigational, mission, and geological information. We aim to get our proposal accepted and participate in the challenge in Houston this summer!
