otterlogo-lores

Project OTTER (‘Orbital Technologies and Tools for Extravehicular Research’) is the orbital citizen-science affiliate of the International Institute of Astronautical Sciences. OTTER provides a practical education for the professional interested in Extravehicular Activity (EVA) space suit operations, space flight operations, and mission design. Learn about Martian and Lunar geology, space medicine, saturation diving, life support systems, and spaceflight physiology while testing Final Frontier Design EVA space suits in analog terrestrial, microgravity, and underwater environments! Learn about spacecraft systems, orbital mechanics and operations, and flight test engineering.

All PoSSUM Scientist-Astronaut Candidates and Advanced PoSSUM Academy graduates are eligible to enroll in Project OTTER space flight operations research and education programs. Space Flight Operations courses include OPS 101: Spacecraft Systems Engineering, OPS 102: Orbital Mechanics and Mission Simulation, OPS 103: Flight Test Engineering – Performance, and OPS 104: Flight Test Engineering – Stability and Control.
