Dr. Fanchiang and her students presented their work for the Human
Capabilities Assessments for Autonomous Missions (HCAAM) at Galveston,
Texas for NASA's annual Human Research Program Investigator's Workshop.
See the agenda topics here.
NASA has selected hundreds of small businesses and dozens of
research institutions to develop technology to help drive the future
of space exploration, ranging from novel sensors and electronics to
new types of software and cutting-edge materials. The newly awarded
projects under the agency's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)
and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program also include a
high-power electric rocket and a coating to make solar panels more
efficient that could be used both in space and here on Earth.

This year's NASA Human Research Program Investigator's Workshop was a
great success and provided the TSRCo Team ample opportunities to showcase their work.
Kaitlyn Hauber, MS student from the University of Colorado, won NASA's
student poster competition for her work with TSRCo on measuring cognitive
workload using a portable functional Near Infrared Sensor (fNIRS).
