On 18-19th April, 2016 Vastalla has been at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX to discuss future Deep Space Habitats for manned missions to cis-lunar orbits, Near Earth Asteroids or Mars.
Manned missions in Deep Space pose challenging questions about how to devise habitats that are comfortable and safe for the astronauts to live in while maintaining strict dimension and weight constraints.
Vastalla was part of a mission of Italian partners comprising other three companies and the University of Turin.
In this Space context Vastalla proposes an Internet-of-Things-based architecture for Deep Space Habitats. This architecture allows flexibility of use and powerful features while guaranteeing astronauts safety and onboard systems redundancy.
