Original Abstract

This paper presents a concept for a rapidly deployable Inflatable Land Shelter Demonstrator that can be dropped from the air and deploys independently of an external power grid. This architecture concept is intended to be used as an analog for future space missions using a selfdeployable techniques for the habitat construction on another celestial body as well as for increasing the technology readiness level of critical components of the design as a technology demonstrator. The first analog ILSD is designed to be used in moderate conditions on Earth as a precursor to future revisions for increasingly harsh terrestrial environments and application. Options for deployment of the habitat are studied and optimal architecture for the habitat demonstrator is proposed while interdisciplinary approach is kept in mind. The architecture takes into account three primary operating modes: delivery, deployment, and habitability, and the tradeoffs in the design for an integrated architecture concept for the ILSD. The delivery possibilities are considered from a ground and air-borne, deployment possibilities include fully and partially autonomous as well as one time use versus the ability to reuse or refurbish the habitat, and internal habitability aspects such as HVAC, power generation, lighting, etc. Preintegration of utilities is also studied.
