ISS Reliability Analysis of Water Recovery Technologies

Johnson Space Center (JSC) - Internship
The selected intern will be assigned to the Reliability and Maintainability Group in the International Space Station (ISS) Division of the JSC Safety and Mission Assurance (S&MA) Directorate. The selected intern will perform reliability and maintainability analyses on the strategies used to keep NASA's Space Suit (Extravehicular Mobility Unit or EMU) operational through the end of the ISS Program. The intern will work with in-house experts and major contractors such as United Technologies Aerospace Systems to develop and evaluate the analyses and their implications.
