Standard Measures

Standard Measures Cross-Cutting Project

Standard measures are a set of consistent core measurements taken from space flight crew or ground-based analog subjects to characterize the effects of living and working in simulated microgravity, and isolated confined controlled environments. Standard measures enable the high-level monitoring of countermeasures effectiveness, meaningful interpretation of health and performance outcomes, and help to inform and support future hypothesis-driven, mission-enabling research.
Standard measures include physiological, psychological, and biological measurements that quantify crew or subject health and performance before, during, and after flight or analog missions. Collecting consistent standard measures at each research platform allows cross-discipline assessment of health and performance limits and multiple countermeasure strategies.

The Standard Measures Cross-Cutting Project (SMCCP) was formed by NASA's Human Research Program (HRP) to combine all current and future HRP-funded standard measures efforts in both flight and ground analog environments under a single management and implementation approach.

International Space System (ISS)

Spaceflight Standard Measures are collected from participating U.S. and International Partners ISS crew members to characterize the effects of living and working in space. Standard measures data support assessment and quantification of health risks and efficacy of countermeasures and technologies required to prevent or mitigate adverse outcomes from exposure to the spaceflight environment. The six core areas of the Spaceflight Standard Measures are behavioral health and performance, biochemistry, cardiovascular, cellular profile/immunology, microbiology, and sensorimotor.
