Description: HEIST is an EVA habitat maintenance and repair Hybrid Reality (HR) training system for lunar missions. It consists of an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) environment that is paired with a Physical Reality (PR) interface. The user can enter the VR and interact with it by acting on the physical hardware elements. The training system includes VR simulated lunar environmental constraints as well as PR upper-body constraints to mimic the range-of-motion limitations of an EVA spacesuit.
