Dillon Hall, a graduate student in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M University, won best poster award at the 49th International Conference for Environmental Systems (ICES) held in Boston, Massachusetts.
Hall competed against 30 other students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Maryland, as well as several other schools. His first-place poster “Modeling of Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Suits using Vitus Vitronics Laser Scanning Coupled with CAD/Vidya Software for Fabric Behaviors” details the research work the Aerospace Human Systems Laboratory (AHSL) is doing on a new virtual extravehicular mobility unit spacesuit. The goal of the research is to ultimately develop the capability to rapidly produce customized prototype suits that achieve optimal performance for any size crewmember, reducing both cost and production times.
