ESA Away Team Tricorder Training: The Electronic Field Book

Astronauts from five space agencies around the world are taking part in ESA’s Caves training course – a cooperative adventure to assess and exercise human behavioral and performance skills. – ESA

ESA is developing an app that will link where the astronauts are, where they are performing science activities, and mission control. An electronic field book is a tool that gathers all aspects of work from data to science and communication in one place.

This all-in-one, easy-to-use app can run connected or offline, integrate data on the fly and communicate with ground teams from base camp. Audio and video recordings are also available – no more pen and paper.

Astronauts from five space agencies around the world are taking part in ESA’s Caves training course – a cooperative adventure to assess and exercise human behavioral and performance skills.

The six caveats of this version of CAVES are ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst, NASA astronauts Joe Agaba and Jeanette Epps, Roscosmos astronaut Nikolai Chubb, Canadian Space Agency astronaut Josh Goodrick, and Japan’s Space Agency Takuya Anshish.

The three-week training prepares astronauts to work safely and efficiently in multicultural teams in a safety-critical environment.

As they explore the caves they encounter caverns, underground lakes and strange microscopic life. They test new technology and conduct science – as if they were living on the International Space Station.

Six astronauts must rely on their own skills, teamwork and ground control to achieve their mission goals – designed to develop effective communication, decision-making, problem-solving, leadership and team dynamics.
