    NASA ISS EVA Interface Control Documents (ICD)

  • Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Standard Interface Control Document, SSP 30256:001, Revision F, February 7, 1997, NASA JSC. Part [1] [2] [3] (Adobe Acrobat)

    The Space Station provides Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Aids to assist EVA crewmembers in the assembly and external maintenance of the Space Station. The EVA aids are used at worksites and along translation paths to restrain the EVA crewmembers, to provide stable work platforms, to perform assembly and maintenance tasks, and to translate both crew and equipment. This document defines and controls the interfaces between EVA standard hardware and users of that hardware, and is limited to those interfaces only. For the purposes of this ICD, the term "user" is defined as any element or ORU that interfaces with any EVA standard equipment item. Included in this ICD are drawings, physical specifications, environmental requirements, and mechanical and electrical interfaces between EVA systems and other ISS systems.
