Suborbital Spaceflight and Human Factors

The Next-Generation Suborbital Spaceflight Conference (NSRC) is the premiere research conference for the suborbital spaceflight community. Our Sovaris Aerospace leadership has had the pleasure of speaking at the NSRC, since its inception.  In our human factors presentations, our topics have ranged from reducing complexity in suborbital systems, to optimizing protection of humans against space radiation, to using molecular profiling to better describe the response to humans in suborbital space environments.  A central theme is the importance of using molecular profiling and precision medicine insights to optimize the health and performance of any human entering the spaceflight environment.  Sovaris is pleased to be a part of the NSRC community, and will continue our participation and collaborative efforts well into the future.
