Alion Science and Technology was awarded a $1.2 million contract from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to develop a model-based software tool to predict the effects of astronaut fatigue on performance under the three-year Space Performance Research Integration Tool (S-PRINT) project.

Terri Spoonhour, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Distributed Simulation Group said, “Alion’s human performance models will help NASA enhance astronaut performance by predicting the effects of fatigue on performance during automation mode transitions.  S-PRINT will provide NASA with a method to evaluate and compare the effects of potential countermeasures to maintain optimal astronaut performance in long-duration space missions.”

The contract will run until March 31, 2015.
